GP, Dr Andy Rowland, kindly offered me the opportunity to set up a private osteopathic clinic within his GP surgery. Because I am a qualified doctor and osteopath he was keen to have my breadth of skills available locally.

My background is of a combined career of General Practice, Musculo-skeletal Medicine and Osteopathy. I now work purely as an osteopath, but my patients do benefit from my 30 years of knowledge and skills. Please see me with your sciatica, low back pain, neck strains and other joint problems. I can advise on orthopaedic and rheumatology issues in relation to spine and joint health.

Of note, I now also teach in London, at the London College of Osteopathic Medicine. My role there is as clinic tutor, where I train doctors to become osteopaths. I teach them the theory and hands-on manipulation skills for the job.
