THE head of a Teesside hospital's physiotherapy team has been re-elected as vice-president of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

Katie Bosworth, head of physiotherapy at the University Hospital of Hartlepool, is only the second person in the North-East to have held the position. The first was employed at the University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton.

Aidan Mullan, director of nursing and clinical governance, said: "Katie runs a first-class department and this has been reflected by the confidence placed in her by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy."
