I have been working in the NHS for 8 years now as a Support Worker (Physiotherapy Assistant) I have workers across 3 Trusts in that range from Acute to Community.
Myself and a colleague set up a new Intervention which went onto win an Advancing Healthcare Award in 2020 overall.

In 2020 I spoke about leadership at all levels to the CSP at their conference.

We are still improving the project I have expanded this by completing a journal which I hope to be out this year on QI & Project work.

The project has also been developed so I have produced a training package with handouts and this is in the final stages.

I’ve also helped out other physios with their project. I have taken every opportunity to learn from others and used twitter as a great source of learning.

Through all of this it’s been vital to network and learn from others.
