Ms Carolyn Fitton is Research Fellow within Health Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Carolyn qualified as a Physiotherapist from Cardiff University in 1992. Her early working career was based in the NHS, specialising in the Neurological field in 1994. Carolyn gained vast clinical experience in both adult and Paediatric Neurological conditions, working as a Senior Physiotherapist.
Seeking a new challenge, Carolyn entered the academic world in 2000. Initially she worked as a Link Lecturer at the University of the West of England and by 2002 embarked on a career as a research fellow at the University of Southampton.
The various studies Carolyn has worked on in Southampton have focused on Parkinson’s disease and Stroke. These studies include:

Throughout her research career Carolyn has always maintained a private caseload of Neurological patients. She feels this is essential to maintain her own clinical skills and to keep up to date with changes in the clinical setting, thus enabling research to be relevant and applicable.

Research interests

  • Research into functional recovery post Stroke
  • Research into Parkinson’s disease and Falls
  • Maintaining clinical practice to keep research relevant and applicable
