I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1998. After completing junior rotations at Bassetlaw Hospital and then Rotherham, I specialised clinically in both acute and long term management of neurological conditions. I developed new roles and lead services within the NHS in elderly care, stroke early discharge, neurological inpatients and out-patients. I worked privately as a neurological physiotherapist in out-patients and community.
I started working as a lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in 2007, initially on a secondment and then full time. I have worked as admissions tutor for the undergraduate BSc and pre registration MSc physiotherapy course, and also as a placement lead.
