Dr Sarah Chamberlain-Mitchell
I am a Physiotherapist with a special interest in Respiratory Medicine. I completed my doctoral training in 2016 at Keele University for which I explored the impact and non-pharmacological management of chronic cough in adults. As part of this I worked in collaboration with the European Lung Foundation to investigate the impact of chronic cough across Europe. As well as co-ordinating and leading a multi-centred randomised control trial investigating the effect of Physiotherapy, Speech and Language therapy intervention for patients with refractory chronic cough. I joined the School of Health and Rehabilitation at Keele University in 2013. Prior to this I worked at King’s College Hospital, London, as a research Physiotherapist in the Respiratory Department (with Prof S Birring) and within the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Team (with Dr R Garrod). My initial job as a Physiotherapist was at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Trust which is where I completed my junior rotations post qualifying from the University of Nottingham.
I am a member of the British Thoracic Society (BTS), Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Respiratory Care (ACPRC), European Respiratory Society (ERS), Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).
