Due to the sudden need to social distance and home isolation WNC has developed a Virtual Therapy clinic that allows you to continue to access us for treatment that will allow you to continue with your rehab in the safety of your own home.
WNC Virtual Clinic is a creative forum where our team can review your development and advise you on how you can take control in improving your wellbeing.
WHAT IS VIRTUAL CLINIC
WNC Virtual Clinic is a consultation treatment, access to Cognitive Assessment, Vestibular Physiotherapy as well as Clinical Psychotherapy treatment using a video call system instead of face to face therapy at our Clinic.
