Patricia Scott Physiotherapist – Profile and Clinical Excellence
Mrs Patricia attended a Bachelor of Science Physiotherapy undergraduates degree course at the University of East London in 2003 and graduated in 2006. After graduating from the course, she resided overseas for several years where I acquired conversational Latin American Spanish speaking skills.
Physiotherapist Scott is an HCPC registered and a member of both the Chartered Society of Physiotherapist (CSP) and the Association of Acupuncture for Chartered Physiotherapist (AACP).
Since March 2014, Patricia is providing locum physiotherapy service to various areas of the practice within the NHS Trusts in England, including Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, St Mary’s Hospital Private Orthopedic Lindo Ward, Brighton and Sussex NHS Trust in A&E, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Trust inpatient rehabilitation ward, Central and North London NHS Service, St Pancras Hospital, inpatient rehabilitation ward, Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust Falls Prevention, Epsom and St. Helier’s Hospitals Medical ward and King George’s Hospital, Goodmayes inpatient rehabilitation and Kingston Hospital, medical ward.
I have been working at Central Surrey Hospitals (CSH) in Epsom and more recently in Molesey within a multidisciplinary team setting since December 2015. I provide elderly rehabilitation treatment on an inpatient ward of 20 beds. The patients mainly present with a history of falls and fractures, a relapse of progressive neurological disorders and musculoskeletal disorders and chronic pain management. At the weekends during the winter pressure season of March 2018, alongside working at CSH, I worked at St George’s Hospital, supporting a team of other physiotherapists on the medical wards to facilitate safe patient discharges home.
Prior to working at CSH, I worked at Croydon Health Service (June and November 2015) as a locum Falls Specialists Physiotherapist to provide home-based multi-factorial falls risk assessments in line with the NICE guidelines for people over 65 years old. I also worked at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital performing comprehensive assessments to support patients’ early home discharges from the acute hospitals and also responded to GP referrals at the patient’s own home.
My most recent continued professional development course was in June 2017. A one-day course on the ‘Introduction to Vestibular Rehabilitation, DizzyCare Clinic, Crystal Place, London. It provided current concepts in the management of patients with vestibular dysfunction. It described the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, taught understanding disorders of the vestibular system, described the physiotherapy management of patients with vestibular dysfunction and discussed the anticipated goals and expected outcomes of vestibular rehabilitation.
