Anita Wade-Moulton

Anita qualified from Bradford School of Physiotherapy in 1982 and started her clinical career as a junior physiotherapist at Bradford Royal Infirmary. In a short space of time, she discovered her passion for neurological physiotherapy and played a vital role in developing the NHS stroke rehabilitation services at Bradford.

She then gained a senior post within the NHS at Leeds, working alongside a Bobath tutor in the neuroscience department. During this time, she was a founder of the Yorkshire Neuro special interest group (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists interested in Neurology – ACPIN), responsible for organising and running lectures and courses in the Yorkshire area.

In 1990 when Anita had the first of her two daughters, she stopped working full-time in the NHS and began treating patients privately. Patients were seen at her home in Burscough under the close supervision of her newborn daughter (who fortunately always managed to sleep throughout!). This became the start of what is now Burscough Neuro Physiotherapy.

Initially, she built up and worked with a small team of neuro physiotherapists, developing an excellent reputation for high-quality rehabilitation. She went on to open our rehabilitation centre in Ormskirk in 2010, supported by her husband, Steve. Since 2010 the practice has grown from strength to strength due to the team’s dedication to providing high-quality, affordable neuro physiotherapy.

After 31 years of working clinically within the practice, Anita is now enjoying her retirement after gradually stepping away from clinical practice in January 2021. She has handed over her roles in the practice to Jack Moulton (Clinical Director), who has worked closely with Anita and Steve to develop the business since 2015.

Anita’s main focus now is on spending time with family, friends and her three dogs, and she will often be found in a pair of wellies in her garden!
