Emma Vail CV

Emma Vail qualified with an MSc in Physiotherapy in 2006 from the University of Essex.

Emma began her career as a physiotherapist working for a case management company in London where she developed an integral understanding of the vital role expert case management can take in optimizing complex rehabilitation cases and putting the client at the centre of all decisions.  She developed a natural understanding of the requirements of all stake holders in the management of clients with complex neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation needs.

In 2009 Emma undertook a rotational clinical physiotherapist post at NHS Western Sussex Hospitals Trust. Here she gained experience in a variety of clinical areas including, Neurology, Orthopedics, HDU, ITU and inpatient Neurological-rehabilitation. Working in the acute sector and community environment Emma dealt with complex orthopedic traumas and neurological cases including acquired brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and amputations.

Relocating to NHS Grampian at the start of 2014, Emma used her rehabilitation knowledge effectively, working in the community rehabilitation team where she dealt with a broad spectrum case load of neurological and long term conditions including acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis, amputations and stroke.  Emma has vast experience of collaborative working with carers and families within the home and clinic setting.  She recognizes the vital importance of addressing both physical and psychological needs of patients and providing appropriate recommendations to progress rehabilitation.

Emma currently works in a neuro-musculoskeletal out-patient clinic as a specialist physiotherapist.  Her career to date has demanded above all else a flexible and adaptable approach in unpredictable environments, to be creative and resourceful, to be comfortable making decisions autonomously whilst being happy within a team environment.  Emma has an excellent ability to communicate with a diverse range of people with empathy and sensitivity whilst offering people the encouragement and motivation to achieve their goals.
