Kim Wilson BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy MCSP, ACPIN
Kim started off life in the NHS over 20 years ago as a rehabilitation assistant for one of the first community rehabilitation teams in the UK before graduating as a qualified physiotherapist in 2002 from the University of Hertfordshire. She quickly specialised in neurology after completing all her core rotations, following her passion for rehabilitation. She has experience throughout the care pathway from acute hospital care, rehabilitation units and long term rehabilitation in the community. She has worked amongst many specialist teams at Harrowlands (Dorking), Brain Injury Centre, Queen Elizabeth Foundation (Banstead), National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (London) and for 8 years as Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist at the Bradley unit (Woking). This role included being the physiotherapy injector with Botulinum Toxin for the Spasticity Management clinic working alongside Rehabilitation Consultants.

Following studying at MSc level Kim is passionate about supporting people to find their own positive journey through rehabilitation and empowering them to achieve their own goals. This is through exercise prescription, supported practise and peer support. Kim has also lectured at under-graduate and post-graduate level. She is a member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists interested in Neurology (ACPIN), Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and registered with the Health Care Professional Council (HCPC).
