Female Physiotherapist Sheffield


Sarah Roe
Sheffield Therapy Centre - Director/Clinic Manager

Sarah started her career with the insurance giant Norwich Union (now Aviva) and worked her way up into management, ironically, movingSarah Roe - Practice Manager/Partner STC into the Healthcare / Private Medical Insurance sector.  Sarah and for the NHS where she gained valuable insight into primary healthcare in Sheffield. Sarah now manages everything from top-to-bottom at Sheffield Therapy Centre from the legal stuff to making an awesome brew!  Basically, everything except the clinical therapy.

On a personal level Sarah's life is centred around her one and only son - you can't improve on perfection so she stuck to one ;-)  He's a keen footballer and this strikes her diary out almost completely along with her husband Mark (below) and Cockerpoo, Milo.  Prosecco, Rose wine and a giant bag of peanut M & M's and she's good as gold.  With all the waiting around she squeezes in Spanish on the Duolingo app and wholeheartedly recommends swimming to clear the mind and get the ticker going.  Sarah loves football too so is always glued to a match somewhere.  Sarah is tremendously clumsy and is lucky to be married to a physio to fix her.


Mark Roe - Sheffield Therapy Centre - Partner/Head Physiotherapist

mark roeMark entered the world of Physiotherapy as a mature student, more years ago than he would like to admit. Following a brief career in professional football at Doncaster Rovers, where injury forced early retirement, he was inspired to study at Huddersfield University to become a chartered physiotherapist due to his experiences as an injured footballer. To aid his studies and gain experience he worked for 3 years with the therapists at Huddersfield Town F.C. Academy. Following this he turned down the opportunity to work in professional football, in order to further his knowledge base working for the NHS. After graduation he went on to work at Rotherham General Hospital and worked his way up to be a Senior Physiotherapist. Mark is our Head Physio.and has also worked as consultant physiotherapist to Sheffield Football Club, the world’s first football club. Mark can see any type of musculoskeletal problem but has a keen interest in sports injuries, particularly of the knee.

Mark is a keen runner and some would say with his arthritis and asthma he's an inspiration to others that want to start exercising.     As a sports physiotherapist, he is clearly interested in all sports – especially football.  Watching, playing and coaching his son's grassroots junior football league team takes up pretty much all of his spare time but has been a very enjoyable experience.  He also enjoys comedy clubs, making a mess, fidgeting and boxing. 


Matthew Scattergood - Sheffield Therapy Centre - Chiropodist / Podiatrist

Matthew runs our regular Chiropody / Podiatry clinic every Thursday morning.  With over 20 years experience, he is confident there isn't muchChiropody Clinic Sheffield Pdiatry Podiatrist he hasn't seen in the way of foot health.  He is registered with the Health Care Professions Council and his work is recognised by many insurers.  A very hard working man indeed and our patients are guaranteed to benefit from his experience and treatment.  Very little daylight in his diary due his loyal patients spreading the word, so Matthew is running a cancellation list for anyone interested in his service.


Matt enjoys playing squash, supporting Liverpool FC and is  family man with three children and a wicked sense of humour; there is never a dull moment with Matt.  Thursday morning clinics are certainly a highlight of our week in clinic having him around. A highly experience therapist and one that can also make a superb cup of tea.  We love Matt.





Simon Edey - Sheffield Therapy Centre - Senior Physiotherapist

Simon first became interested in Physiotherapy following an accident which ended an otherwise extremely unremarkable career in rock climbing. Recovery from his injury (ok it wasn’t really that bad, he just sprained his finger), was assisted by a physio and this experience created an interest which eventually led to a completion of a Physiotherapy degree at Sheffield HallamSimon Edey Senior Physiotherapist Sheffield Therapy Centre University from 1997-2000. His first 10 years were spent (mainly) in outpatients at Rotherham General Hospital where he completed several postgraduate courses including the illustrious “Maitland” (part 1) and most of a Masters degree in Manipulative Physiotherapy earning him a Post-Graduate Certificate in musculoskeletal physiotherapy.


It was while at Rotherham that Simon met his “physio-brother-from-another-mother”: Mark Roe. Simon then proceeded to teach Mark everything that he knows – indeed Mark now acknowledges Simon as one of the many physios who might have told him something useful at some stage in the past (probably).  No, he definitely did. Simon was Mark’s mentor and so the in-house competition of who is best can be quite something at times. We’ve often been asked to clone Mark by patients so that there are more appointments to go around; we didn’t clone him, but we got as close as we could to getting another lovely physio in clinic who knows his stuff, is passionate about the recovery of his patients and is very friendly and funny too.


Simon is a very experienced “hands-on” musculoskeletal physiotherapist whose goal is to get the patient better as soon as possible returning to their activity whether that is at a high sporting level or simply to be able to walk to the shops!  We’re very privileged to have him on the team.


When not working for us, Simon spends most of his time running, going to the gym and driving his children around to their various sporting activities. He also loves cooking and his gorgeous Cockerpoos.

Gill Elliott - Clinic Receptionist AKA "The Rock"



Gill is our rock and joined us 2015.  Gill had previously ran her own business with her husband managing the accountancy and administration whilst bring up her son.  Her baby is not so much a baby now and Gill helps run our reception where you will always find a cheery smile and hear her unmistakable laugh ringing around the clinic.  Gill is straight talking, reliable and gets the job done to perfection!  She tried to escape though when lockdown hit and announced her retirement.  We let her think we were letting her go and she retired peacefully.  We of course kept in touch and timed our offer of a part-time return to work to perfection as slight boredom was kicking in.  We're absolutely delighted to have her back in clinic albeit for only a few hours here and there.  Gill is a very keen runner and like her nibbles and wine like Sarah too.
