Profile

My strong interpersonal and communication skills enable me to develop a good working relationship and rapport with my clients, their families and wider support network. This enables me to effectively meet clients’ needs in a holistic manner. I enjoy problem solving to assist my clients to achieve their goals.

Previous Clinical Experience

2015 - Present Specialist Paediatric Community Physiotherapist-London North West University Healthcare Trust

Working with children and young people (0-18 years) with a variety of conditions and disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, developmental delay, acquired brain injury, Down Syndrome and Orthopaedic injuries (trauma).

I have a special interest in working with clients involved in transitioning from Paediatric to Adult services and enjoys goal setting with young adults and their families in order to continue to enhance their independence and quality of life.

2013-2014 Paediatric Community Physiotherapist-Bromley Healthcare

Delivering Physiotherapy to clients in both the community setting and within a special school for children aged 5-19 with various disabilities. Within this role, Imelda was able to utilise other Physiotherapy treatment tools including Hydrotherapy, a mechanical horse and Ijoy and group exercise sessions. She was able to develop her communication skills further through the use of Makaton and this role assisted in developing Imelda’s knowledge of Augmentative and Alternative communication devices.

2011-2013 Paediatric Physiotherapy Assistant, Neuro Orthopaedics-Evelina London Children’s Hospital

This role enabled me to work closely with clients and their families to understand the complex needs of clients with Cerebral Palsy and acquired brain injury. She gained experience in completing a variety of outcome measures, both pre and post Orthopaedic surgery with clients and their carers. This included functional measures such as the Gross Motor Function Measure and quality of life measures such as the Caregiver Priorities and Child Health Index of Life with Disabilities (CPCHILD) questionnaire and the Paediatric Pain Profile (PPP.) This further enhanced her knowledge of the practicalities of daily life and potential difficulties that this client group experience.
