Get to know more about Tom…

Current position
Band 5 Respiratory Physiotherapist

Personal achievements within the role?
I can’t say I’ve performed any miracles, but to be a help to a busy but very capable team certainly brings a sense of achievement.

What do you enjoy about being a locum?
No day is ever the same. There is always another ward to work on, a different patient to treat and another colleague to learn from.

Most memorable moment within your career?
Though not a single moment, the management of a particular critical care patient comes immediately to mind. It was fantastic to work closely with a dedicated team and contribute to his success. His management was definitely one of the greatest challenges that I have encountered as a physiotherapist, though it was also one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of my career thus far.
