23 Apr Halo Welcomes MACP Training Physiotherapist
Halo is delighted to announce the arrival of Senior Physiotherapist, Laura Oxley.
Laura has worked in a number of physiotherapy roles since 1999, and is currently furthering her impressive qualifications by studying for a Masters in Manual Therapy at Coventry University.
Laura will be treating at Halo whilst completing the Clinical Practice Module of her Masters, allowing her to become a member of the highly regarded Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP).
During her time here at Halo, Laura will receive expert guidance and mentoring from Nicki Bradshaw. Patients visiting Laura will therefore benefit from seeing two leading physiotherapists during their appointment, with both Laura and Nicki in attendance.
Patients, if they’re happy to do so, may also benefit further from visiting Laura by receiving longer treatment times but only paying normal rates if appointments over-run for training purposes.
To book an appointment with Laura, please telephone 01926 257 255 or contact us here
Biography: Laura Oxley
Laura graduated from King’s College London in 1999 with an Upper Second Class Honours Degree in Physiotherapy. After qualifying, she worked for four years in teaching hospitals in North London where she specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. During this time, she additionally worked as an academy physiotherapist for the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club Youth Academy which provided valuable experience of elite sport and access to the highest level of rehabilitation facilities.
Over the next fifteen years, Laura worked in both private, industrial and NHS settings, gaining a wealth of experience in the treatment of orthopaedic and rheumatological conditions, sports injuries, and occupational health disorders. She is currently employed as a Team Leader at the Hospital of St Cross in Rugby, where she supports a team of physiotherapists treating patients referred by the local GPs or who have referred themselves.
Laura’s manual therapy skills enable her to provide care which is highly patient-centred. In addition to providing expert hands on care, Laura takes time to ensure that she equips her patients to manage their condition in both the short and long term, via the use of bespoke exercises and advice.
Passionate about delivering the highest standard of care, Laura embarked on the MSc in Manual Therapy at Coventry University in 2015 on a part-time basis, and she will graduate in 2019. Successful completion of the Clinical Practice Module will enable Laura to become a member of the highly regarded Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) and she is delighted that Halo has offered her the opportunity to complete her placement with them.
When she is not working, Laura loves to participate in sport and exercise. While previous hobbies have included scuba diving and playing football, she continues to indulge in skiing, running and playing tennis. While these interests provide her with immense enjoyment, Laura also finds that her first-hand experience of these activities is of enormous benefit when guiding her patients back to full fitness.
Laura is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP No. 62405) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC No. PH56874).
