Advanced Practice Physiotherapist, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, NICE Scholar
About Victoria Lyle
Victoria is an advanced physiotherapy practitioner at the Salford Care Organisation. She graduated from Bristol in 1999 and soon specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Her advanced practice is complimented by a Trauma & Orthopaedics MSc. With experience of working in fracture clinics she started work at Salford in 2014, employed to set up a Virtual Fracture Clinic.
She has a keen interest in service re-design through innovation and pathway development, particularly between Orthopaedics and the Emergency Department. She has presented her work at Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and British Orthopaedic Association conferences.
As a NICE scholar, Victoria hopes to assess the implementation of our guidance for non-complex wrist fractures at Salford Royal Hospital. By collating real world data on this diverse population and evaluating the variation in current practice she hopes to gain a better understanding of local practice. She can then identify and test areas where improvement can be made. It is hoped that this can be shared with other trusts in order to obtain a national picture in conjunction with new evidence as it unfolds.
