Fiona WoodheadRespiratory Specialist Physiotherapist
I specialised in respiratory in 2009 working in an Early Supported Discharge for COPD team at Dewsbury and District Hospital and delivering pulmonary rehabilitation programmes throughout the borough until 2012. After a couple of years as a locum I returned to pulmonary rehab in 2015 in Trafford and have been here ever since. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the positive impact rehab has on patients.”
Jonny LeeSenior Practitioner Physiotherapist
“I joined Trafford Pulmonary Rehabilitation in 2020 following 5 years in West Yorkshire as part of the Cardiorespiratory Team, which involved delivering pulmonary rehab. Prior to this, I completed my junior rotations within East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust after qualifying as a physiotherapist in 2012.
Our service strives towards delivering the highest quality of pulmonary rehab for the residents of Trafford.”
Helen BlakeRespiratory Specialist Occupational Therapist
I came to the Trafford Pulmonary Rehabilitation Team in 2018 following 12 years working in critical care and surgery.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the change from working in hospitals to working in community locations; seeing people become confident managing their conditions and improving their wellbeing is incredibly satisfying.”
