Annette's passion for water started as a young girl,
swimming competitively in County level competitions.
Annette qualified in 1984 from Oswestry & North
Staffordshire School of Physiotherapy. The use of Hydrotherapy during
training at the Oswestry Orthopaedic Hospital led Annette, once qualified,
to further her Hydrotherapy qualifications with the 'Bath Certificate'.
Following Qualification, Annette worked as a Physiotherapist
at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, moving to the Manchester Royal Infirmary
in 1987 as a Senior Physiotherapist in Hydrotherapy and outpatients.
Private Practice was the next step, leading to the setting up of Annette
Turner Hydrotherapy / Hydromobility Ltd in 1999.
Annette was a founding member of the HACP (now the
ATACP) which was set up with an aim to continuing professional development
of hydrotherapy within the physiotherapy profession and promoting
awareness of hydrotherapy to other healthcare professionals.
Throughout her career Annette has trained Students
and Qualified Physiotherapists in Hydrotherapy.
Annette is married with two children and enjoys walking,
swimming, skiing and gardening.
