Dr Angela Green, lead clinical research therapist at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, received the honour as part of the institute’s drive to recruit healthcare professionals to its annual Fellows and Scholars Programme.

Therapy services co-ordinator

Dr Green is responsible for co-ordinating research and clinical governance activities for various therapy services within her trust, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and orthotic and prosthetic services.

She also works with therapy staff to ensure that services are effective, efficient and of the highest possible quality.

Fellows and scholars who represent NICE are given the opportunity to undertake projects that are designed to improve the delivery of care or evidence-based practice.

AHP conduit

Dr Green said her fellowship will provide her with an opportunity to act as a conduit between allied health professionals, NICE and local research networks; allowing her to identify gaps in evidence or guidance and to highlight new and innovative ways of working.

She also intends to focus on improving the alignment of local rehabilitation pathways, by using the best available evidence and through work with local commissioners, health and social care agencies, leisure providers and the voluntary sector.

Dr Green is the only physiotherapist to be awarded with a NICE fellowship this year. Dr Nicholas Harland was awarded a fellowship in 2010 and is in post until 2013. Rebecca Kearney was awarded a 12-month scholarship in 2010.
