Nicole Slement

Having qualified as a Physiotherapist in South Africa in 2012, Nicole gained experience in various fields including neuro rehab, orthopaedic rehab, ICU and musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Since moving to the UK in 2015 I found myself drawn to community physiotherapy.

“I enjoy working in the community as I feel that treating people in their own homes is the most comfortable for them, the best place for functional rehabilitation and allows the family to be involved when needed. It also allows me to really get to know each individual and what is important to them. I have a special interest in working with older adults, Parkinson’s disease and falls prevention.”
