Cat has been part of the development of the new BSc Physiotherapy course aiming to incorporate more of a holistic approach to teaching new Physiotherapists.
Cat started out as a Physiotherapist at Lancashire teaching hospital in various roles as a newly qualified before specialising in the surgical department. This involved working in burns and plastics where she was seconded for 2 years treating hand injuries and reconstructions, Critical Care medicine and general surgery. Cat saw an area that required development in head and neck cancer and applied for and was successful in developing a Physio role to support such patients. For 5 years she specialised in Critical care medicine and Head and Neck Cancer.
Cat then decided she wanted to explore a different area of Physiotherapy and moved into trauma and musculoskeletal Physio. After a short time here she decided to leave the NHS and complete a MSc in Advanced Physiotherapy and started working privately to be flexible around her studies.
