Claire qualified from Bradford University in 1993 with a BSc in physiotherapy. She first worked at the Royal Liverpool Hospital from 1993 to 1995 where she gained a wide range of experience in all departments as a junior physiotherapist. She then went on to develop her neurological skills in various hospitals in the North West including Withington and Trafford. Claire then moved down to Birmingham to work as senior physiotherapist on the neurology, neurosurgery and neuro intensive care unit.
Following a move back up to the North West 5 years later Claire spent 6 months travelling abroad to countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Canada and South America before returning to neurological physiotherapy.
Claire has completed the Bobath course as well as the advanced course and many workshops. She also has gained several modules of an M Sc, the most recent being injection therapy allowing her to inject Botulinum toxin to patients with spasticity. She is also trained in FES and EMG stimulation.
Claire is committed to her continuing professional development and regularly attends training courses and keeps up to date with the latest research. She has worked with all types of neurological patients but has special interest in helping people with multiple sclerosis and is committed to achieving patients’ goals and maximising their rehabilitation potential to allow the best possible quality of life.
