Dr Gillian Campbelll
Having qualified as a vet in 1986, I developed an interest in sports medicine while pursuing my rowing career in London and decided to retrain as a physiotherapist.
After qualifying from UCL in 1995 I moved to the Midlands to work within the NHS, where I was I was lucky enough to gain experience in the Women’s Health department and start to specialise in this field. I qualified with the Certificate in Women’s Health from Bradford which allowed me to become a full member of the POGP. I have continued to expand my knowledge within this field through attending specialist courses in bladder and bowel conditions and pelvic pain and I also work as a Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham investigating pelvic health issues in the athletic population.
In my spare time I continued rowing till moving here when I changed to triathlon, thinking it would take up less time?!
I still cycle as much as possible ‘working’ every year at a training camp in Mallorca.
My 2 children now both swim far better than I do and when they can both cycle and run faster that would be the time to dust down my single sculling boat and get back on the river
My continued interest in sports injuries and particularly their rehabilitation lead me to study for a Doctorate at the University of Nottingham where I was lucky to work with both the Biomechanics department and the Centre for Sports Medicine looking at tendon dynamics and strain. I completed this in 2011.
