I love my job but when I am not at work you will probably find me out on my bike enjoying the countryside pretending to be keeping fit. Failing that, I will probably be in the garden with my wife and our cat and chickens!

EDUCATION

Birmingham School of Podiatry 2000

LANGUAGES

English

After graduating in 2000 I immediately started working privately sticking to the core principles of podiatry, routine chiropody, wound care and minor surgery for treatment of ingrowing toenails. I also aligned myself with physio, osteopathic and chiropractic therapists to gain as much experience in musculoskeletal pathology as possible. This has given me a more holistic and rounded approach when prescribing orthotics for patients, taking into account the global picture of their body and not just from the knee down! Podiatry has been good to me and taken me to interesting posts and places. This has included Chief 3 in Dudley South PCT, (as it was), heading up the Biomechanical Department and Orthotics Manufacturing lab. A brief spell working for Snow and Rock in London making orthotics for Skiers, (I love skiing!) and a long spell teaching back at the School of Podiatry in the orthotics lab there! During my time in the NHS I was alongside a podiatric surgeon and this has set me up well for my work now, as I take referrals from different orthopaedic surgeons for foot, knee and hip patients. Along the way I have added to my repertoire with podiatric acupuncture and joint mobilisation, both of which I refined on a visit to Australia where I spent some time with a muscoloskeletal doctor in Sydney. However, I like to keep up to date with the basics with regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) because these, delivered well, with kindness and a human approach yield great results for patients.
