Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist in Pulmonary Hypertension
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Carol is a physiotherapist with 20 NHS experience. She works in Sheffield at a regional Specialist Centre for Pulmonary Hypertension, a rare respiratory disease, and was the first physiotherapist in the UK to specialise in this area. In recent years she has developed an innovative service promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyles in patients with pulmonary hypertension, a disease group which had hitherto been considered high risk for exercise. As well as her clinical work Carol has a passion for research and is undertaking a PhD to investigate the impact of rehabilitation in this patient group.
