Nicola Beaumont


I was appointed as a lecturer with the Physiotherapy academic team at York St John University in January 2018. I graduated from Leeds University with a BHSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy in 1997. Following graduation I worked for 20 years within the NHS. After completing 2 years of general rotations I spent 18 years specialising in respiratory care. In particular my areas of interest are Critical Care, Cardio thoracic, tracheostomy management and early rehabilitation on critical care. I maintain my clinical skills by working weekend shifts within my clinical areas of expertise.
