Rehabilitation Team Leader
Fiona graduated as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1994 and worked in the NHS and in private sports clinics until 1997. Fiona underwent post-graduate training to specialize in physiotherapy for animals 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 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.
Having worked with Professor Noel Fitzpatrick since 1998, she joined Fitzpatrick Referrals in 2007 when the practice in Eashing opened. She took on the role of Rehabilitation Team Leader in September 2012. Fiona now enjoys a mix of clinical and non-clinical work, leading the team of physiotherapists and hydrotherapists.
