Fiona combines her work to lead and oversee the direction and quality of Bridges Self-Management with her academic role as Professor of Rehabilitation Research at St George’s University London. Fiona has worked in a variety of clinical roles in acute and community rehabilitation and became interested in self-management research after completing her MSc in 1997 and a PhD in 2005. This led to the development of the Bridges stroke self-management programme. Her work has now extended into many different areas with a focus on advancing the quality of self-management support for different stakeholders and developing programmes suitable for both acute and community healthcare settings.
The team describe Fiona as being incredibly knowledgeable (but understated), kind and genuine. She is relentlessly optimistic and sees the potential in everything and everyone. Her passion for her work is unmatched and she is always open to new ideas and ways of working; a constantly moving force – likened to a really cool, giant lava lamp!
She also makes great chocolate brownies and is very fashionable!
As a team we share the same ethos and philosophy that drives our passion to create the best experience and environment for patients to live well. Bridges provide opportunities for both patients and professionals to work collaboratively to enhance self-management skills, knowledge and confidence.
