Trial Manager (CSAW)
I joined NDORMS in March 2012 as Coordinator for the CSAW Trial, a UK multi-centre orthopaedic surgical trial funded by Arthritis Research UK that aims to assess the clinical and cost effectiveness of surgical treatment for sub-acromial shoulder pain.
I am a HCPC registered Paramedic with 10 years' 'frontline' service. Prior to joining the ambulance service I worked in various areas of manufacturing, research & development and quality control within the medical diagnostics industry.
I have also trained in the management of activity injuries and sports/body massage (I IST/ IIHHT) and hold a BSc Honours degree in Sports and Fitness Science.
