Physiotalk was founded in 2013 by Naomi McVey and Janet Thomas.
In 2018 we decided to expand the team and invited @physiotalk followers to join us. We were delighted with the response and here are the new team members (In no particular order!)
Hello I’m Lewis! – you can find me at @lewadam discussing all things physio, followed by the occasional cricket retweet.
Having completed an undergraduate degree in Sports Therapy I am now a first year MSc Physiotherapy student at York St John University. I count myself fortunate already having an interest within MSK practice, particularly surrounding the reforming practice debates and discussions which have been circulating for sometime.
Over the past 3 years I have utilised Twitter as a valuable (somewhat addictive) CPD tool which has unquestionably progressed my learning due to the wealth of information available. Being part of the #physiotalk team provides a great opportunity to continue to broaden my networking circle, whilst generating thought provoking discussions to facilitate the learning of many other social media users (including myself!).
Helen (@hartey_PainPT) graduated from Coventry University in 2000 and has since gone on to complete an MSc in Rehabilitation at St Georges, University of London.
Anna (@spiteri_anna) says: I have worked as a Paediatric Physiotherapist in Enfield since 1994. I work time as a clinician and part time as a Freedom to Speak Up Guardian which is a role helping staff to raise concerns about safety. I have extensive experience in Paediatric musculoskeletal and neurodevelopmental physiotherapy. I have completed formal postgraduate training in leadership at University College London in 2017. I am interested in all things Physiotherapy and all things related to patient safety. I am also interested in the AHP agenda. I am interested in digital technology and how it can be used to share and network
