A PRIVATE health practice has been named the best family-run health and wellbeing clinic in the UK.

Bridge Health & Wellbeing in Christchurch picked up the honour at the GHP Private Healthcare Awards.

Paul O’Connell, co-founder and lead physiotherapist at the Bridge Street business, said: “It’s mind-blowing to be awarded the title of best family-run health and wellbeing clinic in the entire UK.

“Family has always been at the heart of everything we do. Our whole family was involved in the planning and development of Bridge Health & Wellbeing, and inspiring our children is what drives us to keep the clinic moving forwards.

“Special thanks must go to our wonderful clients and our families who have been so supportive. Despite all the Covid challenges of the first three years of running our business, we are proud to have realised our dream of creating a dedicated wellness space where clients can get better, build strength and feel happy and healthy in their mind and body.”

The business provides physiotherapy, chiropractic, sports massage and rehabilitation services, and Pilates, yoga, and other wellbeing classes.
