In 2002 Tricia returned to the Royal Free Hospital as a Women’s Health Physiotherapist, focussing on the treatment of urogynaecology and bowel patients, specialising in particular on vulval pain and coccydynia. She was seconded to Camden’s Bowel and Bladder Continence service focussing on faecal and urinary incontinence at a number of Islington GP practices.

Tricia cares deeply about helping patients to understand their problems, understand the management, feel empowered to control and reduce their symptoms, thereby helping avoid invasive surgical procedures and tests, and improve their quality of their lives.
