Career summary

Clinical experience in hospital and community settings in the UK and Canada over 13 years made me appreciate the unique contribution of physiotherapy to health care in areas of prevention and health  promotion in primary care, and in rehabilitation settings. This led me to take an MSc in Ergonomics and then to go on to train as a physiotherapy educator. I worked at the School of Physiotherapy, Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge before coming to UEA in 1993. I was appointed a senior lecturer in 1997 and a Reader in 2003
