Advanced Physiotherapist Practitioner
Qualified from the University of Northumbria at Newcastle in 2003 with BSc in Physiotherapy. I have worked for the NHS since leaving university and specialised in musculoskeletal (MSK) physiotherapy since 2005-6. I have worked as an advanced physiotherapist in outpatient clinics since 2009 which involved working alongside many orthopaedic consultants and assisting them during clinics. I went on to specialise further in MSK (musculoskeletal conditions) physiotherapy by completing the MACP in manual therapy at MSc level at Teesside University 2013. I gained the accreditation of independent physiotherapist prescriber in 2016 and injection therapist in 2017.
As an advanced physiotherapy practitioner now employed full time at St Andrews Medical practice I am keen to develop the role which will involve assessment of any MSK conditions, provide advice and management, offer investigations if required, prescribe appropriate medication and deliver joint/tendon corticosteroid injection clinics.
