I have worked in the Clinical Ageing Research Unit (CARU) since March 2015 as a senior Research Physiotherapist
I specialise in neurology and older people’s medicine and have worked in the NHS since qualifying over 30 years ago. I predominantly work with the Brain and Movement Group who specialise in the assessment of gait and balance in laboratory and real world settings. I also provide support to commercial and non-commercial studies based in CARU and in the community. I support the movement disorders clinical service, which helps recruitment to studies but also translates rehabilitation research evidence to clinical care in a timely manner.
Within CARU I also have a role in monitoring clinical research governance and am the School Safety officer.
I have a broad clinical experience specialising in neurology and older people’s medicine. I have previously worked in acute clinical, rehabilitation and community settings and was a team lead physiotherapist for many years.
