New recruit eases West Coast physiotherapist shortage

Accessing physiotherapy treatment on the West Coast has just become a whole lot easier thanks to occupational health company, Fit For Work, adding a physiotherapist to its team.

Sue Donaldson, who is a specialist in musculo-skeletal physiotherapy, has started seeing people at Fit for Work’s Greymouth clinic. She will provide a full range of physiotherapy services and is particularly skilled at working with people suffering from back, neck, shoulder and knee issues.

Fit For Work director Lenny O’Connell said his company is delighted to be helping West Coast people access much needed physiotherapy services. “There has been a huge shortage of physios on the Coast and we hope that by adding Sue and other physiotherapists to our team, we can significantly improve the situation.”

Originally from Nelson, Sue, has been a physiotherapist for about 25 years. Before moving to the West Coast, she worked in other parts of New Zealand, and spent eight years living and working in Australian mining communities. She is married to a West Coaster and said she loves living on the Coast.

“At Fit For Work, I expect to be treating people of all ages with a wide range of issues, so there will be plenty of variety in my day. We’re well set up to treat physiotherapy patients, with plenty of car parking for those with mobility issues.”

Fit For Work is a nationwide company offering the most comprehensive range of occupational health services available in New Zealand. Its specialties include occupational health, work rehabilitation, pain management and career services. To book a time to see new West Coast physiotherapist Sue Donaldson or any of Fit For Work’s West Coast team call 03 366 3451.
