1:30 Angie Logan (Influencing through research)
Angie qualified as physiotherapist in 2007 from Plymouth University. She completed her junior rotations in Portsmouth Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and in 2009 moved to Cornwall to take up a Specialist Physiotherapist post in the Stroke Rehabilitation Unit . In 2010 Angie began her MSc Neurological Rehabilitation, finishing in 2013. She secured funding from Health Education England to undertake a 12 month Clinical Academic Training Programme Internship in 2014 where she worked one day per week developing a proposal for the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship. In April 2016 she was awarded £267,000 for a three year Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship to undertake a clinical trial to determine the feasibility of a functional standing frame programme versus usual physiotherapy for people with severe stroke as part of their inpatient sub-acute stroke rehabilitation. Angie continues to work clinically as well as lead her research throughout Cornwall and Devon.

2:05 Chris Foster (Influencing case study 1)
Chris qualified from St Marys, Paddington in 1966 and spent the first few years after qualification in general hospitals in Slough, Haywards Heath and Maidstone. An interest in paediatrics took her to Chailey Heritage, a hospital and school for 100 physically disabled children. In 1987 she moved with her husband a medical physics technician at Chailey, to North Devon, to fulfil his dream of building and running a miniature steam railway and so giving up her physiotherapy career. Although the railway was successful it was necessary for Chris to return to physio and after a few months in the NHS, an opportunity to join the community paediatric team of 2 physios and an assistant arose. She stayed with the team until her retirement in 2005, dividing her time in the last 2 years between the community team and the Children’s Hospice. Following retirement she was elected onto the CSP retirement association committee where she served as Secretary and later, Chairman, stepping down after 8 years on the committee. She now represents retired members on the SWERN core team.
