Alison Morton

We will be shining a spotlight on different members of staff from across CCICP. This time we take a look at Alison Morton (pictured), Paediatric Physiotherapy Assistant.

What's your background?

Before starting in my current role I looked after my children whilst studying various evening college courses. I had an interest in exercise and health so completed a course in personal training and sports therapy. Shortly after deciding to start working part-time I saw the advert for my job. It was perfect.

How did you get to the role are in now?

I have now been a Paediatric Physiotherapy Assistant for 11 years. At first I worked two days a week and as I became more experienced I increased my hours and responsibilities. I now work five days a week.  

What does your job entail? 

My job is very varied and interesting. I assist children into their standing frames, provide hydrotherapy and deliver group exercise sessions in classrooms with school staff. I also assist physiotherapists when providing 1:1 physiotherapy programmes.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

I'm very privileged to work with amazing colleagues and patients. Seeing our patients working hard to achieve their goals is incredibly rewarding and makes me really happy.

Is there a standout moment that you've had over the years? 

It's very difficult to choose a standout moment because every day is so rewarding. I am however very proud that I received a Christmas Compassion award last year and I was a Star of the Month in August 2019. Being recognised for working hard is extremely rewarding.

What's the best bit about working for CCICP?

The best thing about working for CCICP is the support that my colleagues and manager provide and the recognition I receive for my work. My team works hard to achieve the best outcomes for our patients which is very rewarding.
