thepractice integrated healthcare in Totnes devon
our hands your health
thepractice is committed to the provision of excellence and places the wellbeing of its patients at its heart.
Our dedicated, friendly team of practitioners will work with you to help you achieve your optimum health and wellbeing, supporting you to make informed choices and, if necessary, lifestyle changes between treatments.
Each practitioner has a good understanding of all disciplines available across the team, and will plan the most appropriate course of treatment with you, which may be interdisciplinary.
As a team we can ensure that treatments are allocated and spaced out appropriately to maximise effectiveness and to make sure the patients’ budget is being spent wisely.
The Integrated Approach
thepractice is uniquely placed to offer practitioners who not only strive to excel in their field but who have specifically chosen to work under the same roof so that they are able to work together as an integrated team.
It is the belief of the practice that, where appropriate, and with practitioner dialogue, a combination of disciplines can often be more effective than that which any of the disciplines can provide on their own.
To achieve this thepractice holds regular in-house practitioner workshops so that, with the patient’s consent, time is given over (at no additional cost) to consider the most effective course/combination of treatment(s). Thus an active dialogue between disciplines and practitioners is maintained especially beneficial to patients with long standing health concerns.
Throughout the process the patient and/or family remain the primary decision maker and the choice for therapies and approaches will be guided by the patient’s previous experience, personal preferences, and intuition, as well as our clinical experience.
It is often the case that different people presenting with the same set of problems could very well be treated in dramatically different ways and still with potential benefit.
