Grad Dip Phys
I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1989 and have developed into a highly skilled physiotherapist specialising in Pelvic Health. In addition to carrying a clinical caseload I am also involved in an inter-disciplinary team and 1:1 supervision as well as a Clinical Educator for Physiotherapy students. I have also undertaken clinical mentoring for Physiotherapists undertaking the Women’s Health course at Bradford University.
Since 1998 I have been employed by Salford Community Health as a Band 7 Women's Health Physiotherapist and I am both hospital and community based. I specialise in Pelvic Health – which includes the treatment of both men and women presenting with chronic pelvic pain and/or bladder dysfunction and the treatment of sacro-iliac joint complex and the Pilates concept.
My role and responsibilities include providing a range of professional advice for both staff and patients in the treatment and management of continence, chronic pelvic pain and musculoskeletal conditions in pregnancy and the post natal period. I also manage patients who have undergone gynaecological surgery. This patient group is of a specialist nature and requires management of conditions that are complex. I take a lead role in the provision of ensuring health promotion for the above patient group and ensure that the advice given is in line with the NICE guidelines. I have an active role in the delivery of in-service training within the multi disciplinary team and facilitate professional development using CPD, professional development plans and clinical supervision.
I also undertake medico legal case work for Somek and Associates. I accept instructions from both Claimant and Defendant Solicitors and Insurers. I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to Expert Witnesses.
