Fiona graduated as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1994 and worked in the NHS and private sports clinics until 1997. Her interests lay within the orthopaedic and outpatient sectors where sports injuries are common.
Fiona underwent a post-graduate training to specialise in 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 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.
Having worked with Professor Noel Fitzpatrick since 1998, she joined Fitzpatrick Referrals in 2007 when the Eashing site opened and took on the role of Rehabilitation Team Leader in September 2012. Fiona now enjoys a mix of clinical and non-clinical work, and managing a team of 18 members of staff.
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.
