I qualified from University in 2006 and began my first job as a Band 5 Rotational Physiotherapist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead. I worked here for 5 years before deciding to move to Connect to develop my skills in musculoskeletal outpatients.
I know that Connect are renowned for their training programmes and for their interest and encouragement in continuous professional development. This was a huge influence on my move to Connect, as in my previous role training was often not available due to the lack of time and resources.
Role and Responsibilities
In my current role I work across different sites in the North East as well as working other areas in the UK, helping with implementation and training of new contracts. I work alongside a range of junior and senior members of the physiotherapy team including GPs with special interests, ESP clinicians and podiatrists. In addition to this I take an active role in our regular in service training sessions and I also mentor junior members of staff.
