Becky Lees


I qualified in 2014, graduating from Coventry University and initially gained a wide range of experience in rotational and Senior Physiotherapist roles within the NHS. 

I worked in diverse settings including ITU, respiratory, stroke rehabilitation and trauma and orthopaedics before specialising in Musculoskeletal Outpatients. 

I joined academia in 2018,  firstly with the University of Worcester where I achieved Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. In May 2023, I joined Birmingham Newman University assisting them with the launch of their new physiotherapy course. As Senior Lecturer, I enjoy a key role in the education of student physiotherapists and contributing to the future development of the profession. I understand and value evidence-based practice to ensure the latest research is integrated into client care, whilst ensuring collaboration with each person to ensure their individual needs and goals are met.

A keen runner, cyclist, and triathlete I have completed numerous marathon and ultra-marathon distances and have previously represented Great Britain at European level in age-group duathlon. I have clinical interests in health promotion and pre- and rehabilitation of sports and overuse injuries.

I am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (Advance HE)

Please can you pass on my thanks to Becky. I saw her regarding my plantar fasciitis. On her recommendation I went through the couch to 5k program.

It’s worked a treat. My foot is 95% fine and I’ve just completed the 9 week program and back to regular running once more. Maybe I’ll be joining the Alcester running group in 2023! – DG
