Qualifications and Experience

Simon studied Physiotherapy at UWE, Bristol and graduated in 2011. Since then he has gained a vast amount of experience through working with a variety of patients across numerous clinical areas.

Following graduation, Simon moved to Oxford to complete his junior rotations in the NHS. In 2013 Simon was promoted into a senior musculoskeletal physio position working within a major trauma centre as well as a variety of different outpatient settings within Oxford.

Passions

Apart from splitting work between Total therapy and the MOD, I spend most of my time with my family and young son, enjoying the excitement that comes with him growing up. Personally, I enjoy all sports, especially rugby union, cycling and disability sports (such as The Invictus Games) but my main passion is cricket, with which I play in the local Dorset league.
