Tel: 01252 895426

Ann qualified in 1985 from the Oswestry School of Physiotherapy. She is an experienced out patient musculoskeletal physiotherapist , with a special interest in knees. In 1989 she moved to the Lord Mayor Treloar Orthopaedic Hospital in Alton which she managed for eight years. Whilst there she developed her interest in knees working closely with a leading orthopaedic surgeon and developed her knowledge of ACL rehabilitation.

Twelve years ago she became the physiotherapy manager at BUPA Hospital Clare Park. She has built a close working relationship with the Joint Reaction consultants, furthering her interest in knee rehabilitation. This has lead to the development of the Extended Scope Practitioner (ESP) role.

Ann, together with Fiona Goult, fulfils an Orthopaedic Practitioner role for the Joint Reaction team. Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Practioners are Chartered Physiotherapists who have extended their traditional role, into the area of their expertise. In Joint Reaction this means that Ann and Fiona run parallel clinics to Mr Hull and Mr Chissell, where they assess certain hip and knee conditions and arrange appropriate treatment.

Ann has completed the extended scope practitioner module as part of an MSc at Southampton University,

Ann is married to David and has 2 daughters.
