I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Matt Birrell. I was firstly impressed with the thoroughness and thoughtfulness of Matt’s initial assessment report and it has been clear that the intervention and support offered has been consistently tailored to the client’s personal values and needs, and has also included the impact & needs of the entire family. Matt has been a warm and supportive MDT colleague, providing detailed and regular updates- he is clearly committed to achieving the best outcome for clients and I would welcome any opportunity to work alongside him in future.
