    Practice Principal

  • Clinical Experience +

    I qualified as a Remedial Gymnast and Recreational Therapist at the University Hospital of Wales. While studying for my diploma I also worked in miners' rehabilitation centres in South Wales and Cheshire.

    After further examinations and qualifying as a Chartered Physiotherapist I worked at both Northampton General Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London. In both hospitals I worked as a Senior Physiotherapist in the out-patient department specialising in spinal problems and sports injuries - managing their sports injury clinics.

    In 1991 I left the NHS to take over The Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic in Morpeth. I designed and had built the Clinic in Cramlington which was officially opened in 2004 by Sir Bobby Robson.
