Anthony is a senior physiotherapist at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in Stanmore, Middlesex. He has worked at the RNOH since 2011, and has developed a passion within the field of lower limb Orthopaedic Rehabilitation.
He is currently studying for his PhD (with thanks to the Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (CDRF) scheme), and the CONNECT Project forms a major part of his research. Prior to commencing the Fellowship, Anthony's role at the RNOH was as Therapies Research Coordinator. The clinical aspect of this role was within the RNOH Joint Reconstruction Unit's residential Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Programme. The research aspect of the role was to support the Therapies Directorate with the delivery of the Therapies Research Strategy. Anthony has provided support to a number of projects within the Directorate, including grant-funded studies.
Anthony is currently Chair of the Association of Trauma and Orthopaedic Chartered Physiotherapists (ATOCP). The ATOCP is the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP)'s professional network for physiotherapists working within Trauma and Orthopaedics.
Anthony has recently completed an HEE/NIHR Masters in Clinical Research at the University of Southampton. His project, looking at the acceptability of SKYPE consultations for patients and clinicians within a shoulder instability setting, won an award and has provided the inspiration for this PhD Fellowship.
Anthony will be writing a blog outlining his experiences of the Fellowship over the three year course of his studies.
