"I always knew I wanted to work in an MSK role post-registration, so I was pleased to accept a static post in the outstanding Lincolnshire Community Health Services Trust, and started right away as a Band 4 whilst I waited for my HCPC registration to come through. I started to specialise further into Physiotherapy for Women’s Health in 2021, when my trust were tasked with piloting a new, community service. I found it really interesting to see and experience first-hand the skills we had learned as part of the Service Evaluation and Service Transformation modules in our second year of study."Faye Button, MSc Physiotherapy (Pre-registration) graduate
