Hannah Parkinson qualified with a first class honours degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Southampton (UK) in 2003. After completing her general rotations, she decided to specialise in the care of people with Cystic Fibrosis in 2006, initially working at the Royal Brompton Hospital and then taking up a specialist physiotherapy post at King's College Hospital in 2008. Hannah is now currently the clinical lead physiotherapist for Adult Cystic Fibrosis at King's College hospital and is more specifically responsible for the development of the home care service for patients at the King's adult CF centre. She is actively involved in the CF community in the UK, is a member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in CF and has been involved in the peer review of other CF centres in the UK. Her main areas of interest involve providing better accessibility of care and improving patient outcomes by focussing on adherence. She is currently leading on the development and evaluation of an innovative home care programme for patients at King's CF centre and hopes to publish their experience and findings in this area soon.
