Eckersley Georgie

I first qualified as a physiotherapist in 2007 from St. Martins College, Carlisle, now known as the University of Cumbria. I went on to complete various junior rotations in Rochdale Infirmary and Trafford General Hospital. However, I specialised in cardiorespiratory physiotherapy early in my clinical career with a senior post in a Community COPD Team covering the Chorley and Preston areas. I found this job very rewarding and gained a wealth of knowledge. Nonetheless, after a few years, I moved back into the acute hospital environment of the Manchester Royal Infirmary rotating between Medical and Surgical teams.

I have always enjoyed clinical education and commenced full time at Keele in September 2012. I value continued professional development and since graduating have achieved a PG Cert in Clinical Leadership, PG Cert in Teaching and Learning and a Masters in Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy.

My main areas of teaching include undergraduate and postgraduate Cardiorespiratory elements. This includes underpinning anatomy and physiology, common respiratory assessment and treatment methods used, as well as teaching students about different respiratory environments such as palliative care or ITU.

I also support the teaching of professional practice, as well as health and wellbeing elements.
