Lucy Wills BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy

(Specialist Children's Physiotherapist)

After qualifying in 1999, I gained experience working as a physiotherapist in a variety of specialist areas and settings in Ipswich and Middlesex.  In 2002, I started my paediatric career in West Hertfordshire, working with children and young people aged 0-19 years in the community, in schools, on the children's ward and in the neonatal unit.  In 2007 I returned to Devon with my family, where I grew up.  I worked for several months at Honeylands Children's Centre in Exeter in 2008, before joining the team at Vranch House in 2009. From October 2018 I have been given the opportunity to be the Acting Team Lead in North Devon for three days a week, whilst continuing to work in Exeter two days a week. I work with children aged 0-19 years, splitting my time between the outpatients department and the community, where I visit children with physical difficulties in their mainstream schools to support school staff and children in their physical management. I work closely with a number of professionals and services, including school staff, paediatricians, orthopaedic consultants, orthotics and wheelchair services, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, and advisory teachers, as well as the individual children and their families. I continue to enjoy the variety of work my caseload involves, and helping children to reach their full potential, which is very rewarding.
