I am Alice Searle, a Chartered Physiotherapist with HCPC registration. I qualified as a physio in 1998 from Nottingham University.
Since then, I have worked in many different teams within neurosciences and across London University NHS Hospitals, regional rehabilitation units and NHS and independent community health settings. This, alongside the broad range of different neurological conditions I have treated, has given me a wide breadth and depth of knowledge and experience that I draw upon daily.
I am HCPC registered, have an enhanced DBS and I am a member of ACPIN (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists interested in Neurology) and the AACP (Association of Acupuncturists of Chartered Physiotherapists). I adhere to all professional codes of practice including data protection and confidentiality.
I have a passion for teaching. I regularly supervise and teach other physiotherapists and multidisciplinary colleagues in different NHS Trusts and private settings. I also advise carers and health care assistants on best practice. I enjoy updating my own skills regularly and have attended many post-graduate Masters level courses including Movement Science approaches and Spinal Cord rehabilitation at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. I am also an Advanced Bobath Practitioner.
I strongly believe in working in partnership with patients and their families to achieve meaningful goals that can positively influence their living. I work in collaboration with my other therapy colleagues to provide an individual yet holistic approach. These values, professionalism and evidence base underpin my practice as a neurological physiotherapist.
“Alice has a positive and professional approach when working with my daughter. She is engaging, makes it fun and her holistic approach ensures my daughter is happy in herself and always keen to see Alice for her physio session. We love her!” Lucy Alexander
