MDSC has some big plans for the coming year, and to help us achieve our goals to grow the service and reach as many people who need our support as possible, towards the end of last year we welcomed some new faces to the team.
Lola Harper: Engagement & Communications Manager
Lola brings with her over a decade of communications and brand strategy experience, with a background in consumer marketing she’s an all-rounder who will bring a broad range of skills, experience and contacts to the table. She also has a personal passion for MDSC’s work, having grown up with a best friend affected by MD. Lola will be working closely with the wider team, MDSC supporters and service users to grow our reach and engagement, and to support the expansion of our service throughout the Midlands.
Elizabeth Stickney: Clinical Manager
Having worked in the health and social care arena since 2003 Elizabeth has a background in developing and leading teams in both clinical and community settings to provide essential support for people living with long term health conditions. Before joining the team here at MDSC Elizabeth worked for Macmillan Cancer Support and was responsible for the development of a range of services and support for people living with cancer across the Midlands and South East regions.
In a previous role at the Helen Ley Respite Care Centre for people with multiple sclerosis Elizabeth gained first-hand experience and understanding about the benefits of specialist physiotherapy to people with long term neuro physical health conditions.
Siobhan Crowton: Physiotherapist
Siobhan has over a decade experience treating a wide variety of patients both with the NHS and privately. The experiences gained through these settings have honed Siobhan’s passion for manual therapies and techniques including acupuncture. Most recently coming from a community setting, Siobhan is excited to be working as part of a close-knit team of therapists to provide specialist treatment for people with health conditions that would otherwise not get the ongoing care required to live well with a long-term illness.
