My profession as a Consultant of Spinal Injuries and Rehabilitation Medicine has allowed me to work with patients and healthcare professionals in some of Europe’s specialist spinal rehabilitation centres including:
I have also worked at centres which focus supporting on patients with acquired brain injury (Leamington Spa in the Midlands, Glenside Hospital for Neuro-rehabilitation in Salisbury) as well on many international projects including the International Movement of the Red Cross in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Romania.
The recent closure of Glenside has broken my heart, as rarely have I seen such a pool of dedicated nurses, therapists and doctors dealing within one small geographical area. There were dedicated units for many people with either altered levels of consciousness or requiring ventilatory support or with behavioural problems secondary to brain injury. I have given a lot to that hospital. In return I have learnt so much from patients and staff. Thanks Glenside.
In recent years I have reduced my clinical work, although I still practice as a consultant, teach at post graduate level and attend national and international conferences. I now focus more of my time on medico-legal work, tele-medicine and writing on the subject of ‘neurological rehabilitation’ and ‘rehabilitation in the developing world’.
I am also devoted time to working in support of offering neurological rehabilitation facilities in Mauritius. You can read more about this on my Charitable Work page.
I am continuously researching ways to raise awareness, share specialist clinical knowledge and provide outreach clinics in order to improve patient care around the world. I am newly appointed Chairman of the Affiliated Societies of the External Affairs Committee of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCOS).
