Fiona graduated as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1994 and worked in the NHS and private sports clinics until 1997. Her interest lay within the orthopaedic and outpatient sectors where sports injuries are common.
Fiona underwent a post graduate training to specialise in animals which started in 1997 and was based in Hampshire, although it took her all around the country to study alongside different vets and physiotherapists. Once qualified as a Cat A ACPAT Veterinary Physiotherapist Fiona developed her very own successful animal physiotherapy practice for many years, and indulged her craving for more knowledge by travelling to the USA on several occasions to attend specialist courses in neurology and neuro – orthopaedic practice.
At Fitzpatrick Referrals, Fiona has a clinical responsibility to both the in-patients and out-patients, and she equally enjoys her role as head of Rehabilitation Service and supporting her team of Chartered Physiotherapists.
Fiona’s vision is to further develop the Rehabilitation Service so that it is considered to be one of, if not the best, rehabilitation service in the country.
