Principal Clinician Sandra Snell Grad Dip Phys MCSP. I graduated from University College Dublin in 1984. Since then I have worked as a physiotherapist in a variety of health care settings both in the UK and Ireland. During the past 28 years I have gained experience both working in and managing large physiotherapy departments within the NHS and also in the private sector. Working mainly in Physiotherapy outpatient departments I have gained clinical expertise in the treatment of musculoskeletal, orthopaedic and rheumatological conditions. I have also worked in an accident and emergency department as a Senior Physiotherapist where I was able to treat acute soft tissue injuries and provide timely advice to individuals which minimised their recovery time . I have gained additional post graduate qualifications in Hydrotherapy, Manual Therapy (mobilisation and manipulation), Acupuncture and Injection Therapy. Most recently I have been working as an Extended Scope Physiotherapy Practitioner for the local Primary Care Trust as well as running my own small private practice. In 2009 I was a member of a team that won the Allied Health Professional Leadership Challenge; a national competition organised by the Department of Health to identify therapists with leadership skills.
