Who We Are
Assistant Director of Physiotherapy Members
Clare qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2005 and quickly fell in love with musculoskeletal rehabilitation and occupational health and wellbeing (OH&W).
She has over 15 years of experience in delivering occupational health physiotherapy and workplace assessments in both the public and private sectors. She has also completed post-graduate training in Occupational Health via ACPOHE and an MSc in Occupational Health (Policy and Practice) in 2014.
Clare is the owner of Bespoke Wellbeing, which is a national provider of Occupational Health Physiotherapy, Workplace Assessments, and Functional Capacity Evaluations.
Her work in the field of Occupational Health has also been recognised in several awards and programmes, such as; ‘Best Musculoskeletal Initiative’ in the Occupational Health and Well-being Awards 2020, Natwest Accelerator Programme – “Scaling up Occupational Health Physiotherapy across the UK”, Great British Entrepreneur Awards (GBEA) 2019, and the Zenith Global Health Award (Allied Health Professional) 2019.
Clare hopes her role at iOH will help to:
- Raise awareness and career opportunities in OH&W to AHPs.
- Break the silos within OH&W to create collaborative learning and services across clinical specialisms.
- Scope the specific OH&W learning needs AHPs may have and how this interlinks to wide iOH CPD programmes.
- Support member CPD for MSK, DSE/Ergonomics, Long Covid recovery, and functional capacity/physical capability testing to support a return to work.
