We are very pleased to welcome Abby McCarthy as the new Highly Specialist Physiotherapist at RNOH. This post has kindly been funded by Macmillan to allow us to enhance and further develop the support we offer patients of the London Sarcoma Service.
Prior to taking up this role, Abby was a key member of the London Sarcoma Service leading the physiotherapy team at RNOH for many years. She is passionate about developing and enhancing rehabilitation for patients' following surgery for sarcoma, to ensure the best possible quality of life and function is achieved. She is looking forward to advancing this further and establishing greater support for individual patients along the whole of their pathway.
Abby will be working alongside the Nurse Consultant at RNOH, and the Advanced Nurse Practitioner at UCLH (for patients who have also had radiotherapy treatment), within follow-up clinics and the newly developed End of Treatment clinics.
