Sam now works as a First Contact Practitioner within primary care, seeing musculoskeletal caseloads for General Practitioners (GP) as well as a developing Extended Scope Physiotherapist. These roles involve complex patient management, ordering ultrasound, x-ray and magnet resonance imaging (MRI) and working closely with Consultants in Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and in the Pain clinic. Sam is also qualified to provide intra-articular and muscular corticosteroid injections for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.
“The most refreshing thing about my job is meeting new people and helping them get back to doing the things they love. I love making every patient realise that I care about them, their worries and their goals”
Fun fact - Sam represented the NHS in 2012 by dancing in the Olympic opening ceremony!
