It has been a difficult few months for those who have been waiting to see their favourite physiotherapper, the renowned physiotherapeutic guru, Kate Mcleod, in the clinic.
But, it has been good for her.
Mcleot’s appointment has been delayed twice and the two previous times it was on June 23 and 25.
Mleod, who was born in Glasgow and now lives in Liverpool, has been practising medicine for more than 60 years and has worked in hospitals in the UK, the US and Germany.
She was also one of the first UK-based physiotherapsists to be granted a British licence to practice, after a number of other British practitioners failed to pass the exam.
“I’ve been through hell, and it’s been a great journey.
But it’s not over yet,” Mcleods sister, Tara, told the Telegraph.
“She’s been so patient with me, so understanding and so patient and just a great, lovely lady, who is always giving me the opportunity to do the work.”
Tara Mcleodes mother said she would never have guessed her sister would be the first British doctor to have a British Licence to Practice and to have her licence granted by the Home Office.
“Kate McleOD is an amazing, brilliant, kind and gentle woman.
But now I just feel so honoured to be part of it,” she said. “
In the beginning, I was just a little bit scared of it.
But now I just feel so honoured to be part of it,” she said.
“This is a very exciting time.
She added: “It’s great that the Home Secretary has recognised that there is a need for better access to treatment. “
If you look at the statistics, there are more than 1.6 million people in the NHS waiting to be seen for a COVID-19 test, a lot of whom have been in hospital, and they are not getting the care they need,” Tara said.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd, said the Home Department was reviewing the rules to ensure that patients with British Licences to Practice would not be excluded from accessing care in the future. “
It also helps that Kate has always been a very patient and supportive person and we know that this is a life changing time for all of us.”
Home Secretary Amber Rudd, said the Home Department was reviewing the rules to ensure that patients with British Licences to Practice would not be excluded from accessing care in the future.
“We are looking at ways to ensure patients in the Home and community do not have to wait in queues for a test,” she told the BBC.
“The Home Secretary is consulting on the rules that are in place to ensure we can ensure that our health professionals are available to help people when they need it most.”
She said the government was “working with NHS England to ensure the Government does not put patients at risk of delay”.
The Home Office said: “We want to make sure people get the right support to get through these tough times.”
The NHS is currently undergoing a massive makeover, with a £30 billion ($42 billion) expansion and £60 billion ($88 billion) additional funding coming on stream.
It will also introduce a new National Mental Health Strategy to help ensure that the health of all patients is at the top of the list of priorities.
