Patients are referred to Pace Rehabilitation by law firms, insurers and case managers working with individuals who have sustained major trauma in road traffic accidents or workplace incidents.

Pace Rehabilitation was launched in 2003 by a small team of experienced clinicians who wanted to provide a more integrated approach to the treatment of people who had sustained limb loss.

Our clinic now employs more than 40 staff across three sites in Amersham (Buckinghamshire), Bredbury (Cheshire), and Glasgow.

In 2012, Kate completed her MSc in Rehabilitation Studies at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow and used that work to further direct military clinical provision. Kate is a member of the HCPC and CSP, as well as the ISPO and BACPAR. Kate is part of the military amputee research advisory group for the Centre for Blast Injury Studies (CBIS) at Imperial College, London.
