Professional profile

I studied at Teesside University qualifying in BSc Sports Therapy and MSc Physiotherapy. I have gained extensive experience with NHS rotational and static senior training before moving on to work for 6 years with the MOD in a specialist MSK physiotherapy role. This combined acute management with long term complex patient’s rehabilitation. I treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions with a significant interest clinically in upper limb rehabilitation. Day to day role at Spire Washington involves managing the Physiotherapy Department alongside working in both inpatient and outpatients care and with Andy in the sports injuries clinic. I am also part of the Hospitals Leadership Team.
