Your initial 45-minute appointment involves an assessment and treatment. We assess your pain and symptoms to determine the cause of these symptoms, then recommend a treatment plan for you and begin this treatment. Follow-up appointments are 30 minutes. Your physiotherapist will advise how many appointments you will need but you can stop treatment at any time.

How can I help you improve your health?

I trained as a Physiotherapist at the Middlesex Hospital in London. My first jobs were in and around London where I gained experience in outpatients, neurology, orthopaedics, obstetrics and medical chest conditions. I then specialised in orthopaedics and outpatients.

I took a career break to raise my family, returning to Physiotherapy and retraining in 2012.

Within the Hereford NHS Trust, I worked in orthopaedics and outpatients where I specialised in rheumatology treating individuals, taking classes and liaising with consultants. During this time I trained in the treatment of pain with acupuncture, and self-management of pain.

I started working for Nuffield Health Hereford in January 2016 treating In patient Orthopaedic, Gynaecological and general surgical patients. I also treat outpatient joint replacement patients.

I manage the hydrotherapy service working closely with our Physiotherapy assistant in the treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions which respond well to aquatic therapy.

How can I help you improve your health?

After qualifying as a chartered physiotherapist, I gained a good grounding in a wide variety of physiotherapeutic areas of practice through the junior rotations at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

My first senior position was working in an NHS outpatient Department treating musculoskeletal conditions and working in elderly care.

After moving to Herefordshire in 1991, I initially worked in palliative care at St. Michael’s Hospice, then moving into orthopaedic in and outpatient work within the private sector.

I developed a special interest in occupational health including work related hand and arm conditions and have worked with industry for the last 13 years treating these and other musculoskeletal conditions.

I now manage the physiotherapy department at Nuffield Health Hereford, working both managerially and clinically. I treat inpatients after surgical procedures such as joint replacement and outpatient musculoskeletal injuries.

I am also qualified to use Acupuncture as an additional tool in physiotherapy treatment.
