How can I help you improve your health?
I qualified in 2006 with a 2:1 BSc (HONS) Physiotherapy from the University of Teesside. Prior to working for Nuffield Health Tees I worked for Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust for 8 years as a HPC and CSP registered Physiotherapist.
At the QEH I gained rotational experience in all of the core physiotherapy specialities including Medical/Elderly, Neurology (in patients/community), MSK, Orthopaedics, Cardiac and ITU/respiratory and Paediatrics (including special schools/ community/ lower limb clinic/hydrotherapy/rebound).
I have continued with my post graduate education and commitment to my on-going CPD by attending various recognised courses. Concentrating mostly on Musculoskeletal, as this is my main area of interest. Courses such as The Mulligan concept (Level 1) Nags, Snags & Mobilisation with movement, Problem solving the shoulder – Assessment and management of shoulder dysfunction, Modified Pilates for Rehabilitation (Mat work Level 1 AACP), Bobath, Foundation in Acupuncture (AACP) and Clinical Educators Course (Level 1).
Gaining a well-balanced rotational experience and the opportunity to work with experienced therapy teams along with completing the above courses have helped me gain expert manual therapeutic skills and healing techniques.
I enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle, making the most of opportunities given to me. I take part in sporting events for charity, such as the Great North Run and hopefully the London Marathon in 2017 also for charity.
I feel I am now ready to specialise and further my career in Nuffield health as a MSK Physiotherapist and will be attending a SOMM Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine to consolidate all my previous knowledge. I hopefully look forward to very exciting clinical and managerial opportunities that will help me develop as a physiotherapist.
