Fiona qualified with a degree in physiotherapy from Cardiff University in 2011 and has spent the majority of her 11 year career working within the NHS.
Most recently she worked as a Senior Physiotherapist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, where she gained a wealth of clinical knowledge and experience working across a broad range of specialties. Working within a large hospital trust and major trauma centre has provided Fiona with a diverse range of clinical skills. More specifically she has developed her neurological physiotherapy skills through working with patients following acute stroke, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries, as well as experience within neuro-oncology, and playing a key role in the rehabilitation of patients recovering from critical illness on intensive care units.
She has also gained experience within community rehabilitation settings by working on elderly and stroke rehabilitation wards, as well as completing a rotation at the Central England Rehabilitation Unit in Leamington Spa, which specialises in the multidisciplinary rehabilitation of patients following traumatic brain injury.
Fiona is committed to professional development and delivers care to her patients based on current evidence-based practice. She has completed basic Bobath training. She also has a particular interest in physiotherapy-led pilates and has so far completed her Matwork 1 course.
Fiona is registered with the HCPC, as well as being a member of the CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapists), and ACPIN (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists with an Interest in Neurology)
Originally from South Wales, she relocated back to Bridgend last year and continues her physiotherapy career with the team at Neuro Physio Wales, where she is keen to offer her diverse knowledge and experience to clients with neurological conditions.
