    I am an Advanced Practice Physiotherapist in Paediatric Orthopaedics,
    and have more than 35 years of experience in treating clubfoot and lower limb
    deformity in children. I have been practising the Ponseti method for 20 years
    and was fortunate enough to meet Dr Ponseti in 2004.

    I work closely with Ms Naomi Davis, Consultant Paediatric
    orthopaedic surgeon as part of the The London Clubfoot Clinic, @ The Portland
    Hospital  - www.thelondonclubfootclinic.com and with other Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic
    Surgeons who refer to me for specialist casting for lower limb problems. I also
    network with Paediatric Physiotherapists to provide ongoing rehabilitation
    following corrective casting if required

    I have extensive experience in working with Orthotists to
    promote function following interventions such as casting or surgery. I
    deliver a holistic, child centred approach to treatment.

    I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from St Mary’s
    Hospital, Paddington, London in 1985.

    I have worked at Great Ormond Street Hospital and The
    Hammersmith Hospital amongst others during my career.

    I have been working in my NHS role at Chelsea and
    Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust , London, UK, for 21 years. The Ponseti service there specialises in
    treating complex feet, and takes referrals from children across the UK.

    I am involved in training healthcare professionals in
    Ponseti clubfoot management in the UK and abroad and have worked with Global
    Clubfoot Initiative and several NGOs in the development of the Africa Clubfoot
    Training Programme, visiting Ethiopia,
    Kenya and Tanzania. I have taught in Bangladesh,
    Belarus Hungary and Myanmar. I am part of the UK Clubfoot Concensus Group  and have collaborated with them with Global
    Clubfoot initiative to develop a Royal college of Surgeons validated UK
    clubfoot training programme . www.globalclubfoot.com/training.

    I frequently work with STEPS Charity UK with advice on
    clubfoot related issues.  www.stepsworldwide.org
