About Steve Borrill
MCSP AACP Bsc (Hons) MSc Sports Injury (Physiotherapy)
On graduating from the University of Birmingham in July 2005 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy I became a member of the Health and Care Professions Council, Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and Acupuncture Association for Chartered Physiotherapists, before commencing work at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby in August 2005. I initially worked on a rotational basis, developing clinical skills in a variety of different area’s including:
• Musculoskeletal Outpatients;
• Adults with Learning Disabilities
• General Medicine.
In December 2008 I moved to my current employers at Doncaster Royal Infirmary specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
In 2009 I gained a distinction in MSc Sports Injury (Physiotherapy) from Sheffield Hallam University. This was completed to further my interest in sports physiotherapy and to allow me to be involved in national squads/teams in the future.
I have been actively involved in athletics since the age of 11, competing at county level and reaching finals at regional level.
My interests in athletics has lead to me working for the North of England Athletics Association, being physiotherapist at Senior and Junior Championships and also attending Under-23 International Matches as team physiotherapist. Over the past three seasons I have travelled to Malta with a successful team of Under 20 athletes representing the North of England. I have also attended the British University Sports Association (BUSA) Athletics Championships as team physiotherapist for the University of Birmingham.
This established practice is an opportunity for me to pursue my interests in private physiotherapy while continuing my professional development in the supported environment of the Doncaster and Bassestlaw NHS Foundation Trust. I am currently working my way through the highly recognised International Maitland Teachers Association courses which aim to educate physiotherapists in comprehensive problem-solving and management of patients with neuromusculoskeletal disorders of the movement system based on the principles of the Maitland Concept.
In 2012 I was selected out a large number of applicants to volunteer as a physiotherapist and sports injury specialist at the London 2012 Olympic Games, the highlight of my career so far. This was followed on with working at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.
My current role in the NHS is working as an Extended Scope Practitioner (ESP). This involves using highly specialised physiotherapy assessment skills to assess patients referred to Orthopaedics. In this role I have the ability to request investigations such as X-Rays, blood tests or MRI scans to help make an accurate diagnosis. I am then able to direct treatment of patients, be that offering physiotherapy treatment, administering injections or referring on for Orthopaedic surgery.
