Nurse helps GP Paralympians

  • Comment

A specialist nurse from Salisbury will be providing support to athletes in their events at the Paralympic Games, which are set to get underway today.

Anne Seaman is the lead nurse at Salisbury District Hospital’s Duke of Cornwall Spinal Treatment Centre.

She will be part of a team of clinicians keeping athletes in the ParalympicsGB team fit, with regular clinics and back-up medical support.

Ms Seaman, who will be helping out in her spare time, was selected as a member of the team because of the range of skills she has developed working with spinal cord injured patients.

She carried out the same role in Beijing in 2008 with two nursing colleagues from Salisbury.

Ms Seaman said: “I was absolutely thrilled to be selected and really excited about the Paralympic Games, especially as it is London 2012 , our home Games.

“As a specialist nurse I’m playing a key role in ensuring that the athletes keep fit and healthy and are best prepared to perform to their full potential.”

She added: “I wish every athlete good luck.”
