Meet Enya Daynes, newly appointed PRSAS quality lead

The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Services Accreditation Scheme (PRSAS) are happy to announce the appointment of Enya Daynes to the position of PRSAS quality lead. 


Enya works as a senior physiotherapist within the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust Pulmonary and COVID rehabilitation team, contributing to leading the service. This is a large specialist service providing rehabilitation to those with chronic respiratory disease and long COVID. 

She qualified as a physiotherapist in 2014 at Coventry University and progressed through respiratory services within the midlands. She joined the University of Leicester in 2016 as a research physiotherapist, completing her PhD on symptom management for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in 2020. Since then she has worked as a clinical academic physiotherapist merging her research skills alongside her clinical skills. This has allowed her to integrate up-to-date current evidence into the PR service and lead on pioneering work for rehabilitation in long COVID. 

Enya is the current chair of the British Thoracic Society (BTS) Pulmonary Rehabilitation Specialist Advisory Group and contributed to the BTS clinical statement for PR (2023). This role ensures Enya is able to contribute to PR initiatives nationally and will be well placed as the quality lead for PRSAS. 


Enya Daynes: "I am excited to be a part of the PRSAS as the quality lead. My ambition is to support every service in the UK on the journey to accreditation and ultimately improve the provision of PR for patients."
