Emily Patrick

Physiotherapy Lecturer, Admissions Tutor and Academic Advisor


I am a senior physiotherapy lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University. I have experience of teaching and assessing students within the various physiotherapy routes of study in both university and practice experience settings.


My career in the NHS began in 2007 as a therapy assistant working alongside physiotherapists and other members of the multidisciplinary team within a neurological rehabilitation unit. This experience confirmed my decision to pursue a career as a physiotherapist myself and so I attended Sheffield Hallam University as a mature student whilst continuing to work within the NHS as a therapy assistant.

I started my career as a qualified physiotherapist staying within the NHS rotating around core clinical areas to gain knowledge and experience followed by working in senior roles where I specialised within services for frail elderly patients and complex discharges from hospital. I supervised junior physiotherapists, non-qualified therapy staff and physiotherapy students which I really enjoyed and found rewarding.

In September 2018 I joined the Sheffield Hallam University physiotherapy lecturing team where I can continue to teach students and share my knowledge and skills to inspire the future workforce. I am also an academic advisor and an admissions tutor giving me the ability to support and mentor students throughout their time at university and also to be able to contribute to the complex procedures in recruiting students to the variety of physiotherapy courses available at Sheffield Hallam.
