Sarah Ali

Senior Lecturer



Sarah graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2011 with BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy and started work at King’s College Hospital as a Junior Physiotherapist. After this, Sarah went on to work at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital at Stanmore and rehabilitated patients undergoing the most complex orthopedic surgeries in the country, including amputees on the Cancer Sarcoma Pathway. Here, Sarah developed a passion for complex upper limb rehabilitation and complex pain management, where she worked and trained with nationally and internationally renowned physiotherapists and consultants.

Sarah then joined HCA Healthcare UK, first at The Wellington Hospital in Acute Neurological Rehabilitation. Here, her passion for upper limb rehabilitation helped to transform the post-stroke care upper limb pathway, with the introduction of a complex neurological shoulder clinic for all patients with shoulder dysfunction. In addition, Sarah aided the re-introduction of the inpatient pain management pathway for patients suffering from complex long-term pain.

Sarah joined London Bridge Hospital in August 2018 and is currently working with MSK and neurological outpatients at The Shard and in the Research and Outcomes Centre at 31 Old Broad Street. Within all hospital settings, Sarah has ensured quality control and best practice of all new pathways and treatment ideas through the constant use of audits and case studies and has presented audit data trust-wide at Stanmore and case series nationally at Queens Square.
