It’s just over 3 years since I treated my first patient at PhysioMatters and I wrote my first blog The Journey So Far. It is fair to say the past 3 years have just flown by and I have learnt so much, both as a physiotherapist and as a business owner. So it is with a mixture of excitement and sadness that it is time to hand over PhysioMatters to my colleague Joe McConnell (About Joe).
I can assure you I would not transfer the business over to just anyone. In fact I have pretty high standards when it comes to my practice and my patients so you can be reassured that Joe will continue with those standards of care. Joe and I have worked tirelessly over the past few months to ensure we achieve a seamless transition and we will continue to work together over the next month to guarantee that continuity of care.
It is not easy running your own business, especially in a different country but it has been an amazing experience and one I would not change. It has challenged me, taking me constantly out of my comfort zone but I believe that has made me a better therapist as a result and it has certainly taught me some new business skills.
I have loved every minute of working with the Expat community in Amsterdam and I want to take this opportunity to thank my patients for their hard work and loyalty. I know I am leaving you in great hands with Joe. I look forward to watching Joe develop the practice and I promise Joe that I will do my best to quietly watch from the side lines and not interfere!
