It’s the end of an era for Ed Pratt Sports Therapy. After increasing demands from my university work over the last few years I have decided to stop working in the clinics all together. Tom Howell, who I’ve had the pleasure of working with for a few years, will take over and he is an excellent therapist. There will be a transition period over August and we will keep you updated with all the necessary changes. For those of you who are currently seeing Tom in the clinics, there will be no change to your appointments or the care you are receiving.
I set up the clinics in September 2007 and it is a big decision to step away after 15 years. I have worked with so many fantastic people over this time, working with you to overcome your injuries and help you get to the start line of events from 10k’s to ultramarathons, dance shows and literally getting back on the horse.
For now I will be focussing my efforts on my work as senior lecturer and the clinic manager at Leeds Beckett University and leave you in Toms safe hands.
Hi Ed here, just writing to let you know of some up and coming changes to the clinics and at Ed Pratt Sports Therapy. For those of you who have been to see me before or have known me for a while, you will know that for the last 4 years I have been splitting my time between clinical work and teaching at Leeds Beckett University, with the clinical work taking priority.
I was recently offered and accepted a permanent teaching job at Leeds Trinity University, the role is for 4 days a week. This inevitably means that there has to be some changes to my clinic commitments, with my clinical time reducing to 1 day a week. Amelia, who has been doing a fantastic job for the last year, will be increasing to 2 days a week, one in Northallerton and one in Bedale. We will be welcoming a new Sports Therapist to cover Saturday mornings in Northallerton, more on this at a further date.
Unfortunately, due to my teaching commitments, I will no longer be holding a clinic in Yarm on a Thursday, my last clinic day there will be Thursday 29th August 2019. I am obviously sad to be finishing in Yarm, but excited at the new opportunities to develop as a teacher at Leeds Trinity University. I would like to thank Helen Smith, owner of The Pilates Studio, Yarm, from the bottom of my heart. It is a great venue and Helen has been very supportive from the start.
So, whilst it will be strange for me to reduce my clinic time, I am confident that they are going to be in safe hands and I will still be there in Northallerton once a week and working as the clinical supervisor for the whole business. I will also be very sad to leave my colleagues at Leeds Beckett University, who have supported me over the last few years and given my the best start in teaching in higher education.
