Following graduation from the University of East Anglia as a Physiotherapist in 2007, Emily worked for 5 years as an MSK Physiotherapist which she thoroughly enjoyed. She found working with complex patients whose conditions impacted on both their emotions and social function was the most rewarding to work with, so she decided to specialise in the field of Pain Management. Emily’s particular interests include pain neuroscience and psychological therapies. Initially she worked within a multi-disciplinary hospital pain service before moving into community pain management, where she has worked in leadership positions including clinical operations and quality and governance. She is thrilled to be leading the holistic Community Lincolnshire Pain service for Connect Health, which is improving access to and the quality of pain management treatments available to the people of Lincolnshire particularly the isolated population in rural communities.
