Having worked clinically as a physiotherapist in the NHS for the last 12 years, Abi has now entered into full time education to undertake a PhD. Her clinical experience involves working in both acute and primary care settings, primarily within elderly rehabilitation. Most recently Abi managed a team of physiotherapists to provide care across a variety of different settings.

Rehabilitating patients with cognitive problems is common place while working with an elderly population, but there is little evidence to support clinical physiotherapist work with patients with cognitive problems. This sparked Abi's interest in undertaking a PhD to look at an intervention to improve the outcomes for these patients.
