I joined the South West Neonatal Network in 2022. I am an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner in neonatal neurology and development, and have worked in the neonatal setting in London and the South West for over 25 years. I have been able to develop physiotherapy services both on the neonatal unit and for follow up and have a clinical and research interest in the early identification of infants at high risk of developmental difficulties. I have undertaken roles in clinical research and education. I have an interest in developing the neonatal workforce and am involved nationally in professional special interest groups and with Health Education England, supporting the development of educational material and career pathways for neonatal physios.

I am excited to be part of the network team, developing both the physiotherapy workforce and physiotherapy services within the South West region. The physio team in the region aims to engage with families to ensure we deliver high standard, equitable services to all babies to ensure each baby fulfils his or her potential.
