Anne was nominated by our JustPhysio recruitment consultant Dominic who also praised her saying ‘I could not have picked a better person for the role and she is an absolute dream to work with’.

Current Locum position? Band 6 Community Paediatric Physiotherapist
Personal achievements within the role? Having recently returned to the UK after some time working abroad in a special needs school, I have been able to apply skills developed overseas to the NHS setting.
What do you enjoy about being a locum? The flexibility of my work/life balance and working with other therapists with different skills and backgrounds.
Most memorable moment within your career? When I was a team lead in Neuro, I worked with a patient on ITU with a Critic Care Myopathy who was extremely unwell and there was some uncertainty as to whether he would survive his ITU admission. He had a young family and his wife was pregnant. After many weeks of working closely with him and his family in the acute setting, he was transferred to a rehabilitation centre. Several months later he came to visit me in the therapy department. He walked in carrying his new baby, said “thank you” and gave me a hug. It is the rapport that is built up when working with complex patients that I love most about being a physiotherapist.
