Jay qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1993. Since that time she has spent over 20 years working in the specialist area of respiratory care. Her varied experience includes working in the clinical areas of Intensive care, Neurosurgical and High Dependency Units. She has also worked in the specialist clinical areas of non-invasive ventilation, head and neck surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, medical wards/outpatients and specialist community respiratory care.
She has worked as a Senior Specialist Respiratory Physiotherapist at The Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and the Harley Street Clinic Hospital in London. Since moving to Sussex in 2002, she has worked as a Senior Specialist Respiratory Physiotherapist at both the Princess Royal Hospital and the Royal Sussex County Hospital. Currently however, she works as the Lead Respiratory Physiotherapist for The Sussex Community Respiratory Service.
‘I went into this challenging clinical area to try to make a difference within an area where I can only imagine how frightening, out of control and despondent people feel. People are often told that there is no cure and therefore nothing can be done. In people who have significant breathing disorders/hyperventilation they are often put through numerous tests with no definitive answer and can start to feel that there is no diagnosis and therefore no answer to improving their symptoms. Often the lack of feeling in control, poor confidence and significant symptoms can greatly impact on someone’s quality of life and that of their loved ones around them. There are interventions that can help with symptoms people are experiencing and I am passionate about putting people back in control of their chest condition and improving their quality of life. When a patient says you’ve given them their life back, you know you are doing something right and worthwhile. I am absolutely committed to making this difference and proving that there are things that can be done to help.’
