Paul qualified in 2006 from Southampton University. He started his career at Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust where he spent 8 years, firstly completing all of his junior rotations and then specialising in musculoskeletal outpatient physiotherapy. Paul eventually became a band 7 Physiotherapist where he managed the running of the lower limb service for the department. This role saw him specialising in ACL rehabilitation, PFJ and osteoarthritis management, total knee and hip replacements as well as running post-operative clinics for knee surgeons. During this time he worked closely with the physiotherapy department and surgeons in the development of the lower limb service pathways for the trust.
Paul eventually left Guy’s and St Thomas in 2014 and worked in the private sector for a short spell in central London at Central Health before managing to secure a physiotherapy position on the south coast at Brighton and Sussex University Hospital. Here he spent approximately 18 months before his final move to Horder Healthcare in December 2016. Paul currently works as a lower limb extended scope practitioner at Seaford, Crowborough and Peacehaven.
Paul is currently studying at University of Hertfordshire where he is completing his MSc in Advanced Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. Paul has a specialist interest in lower limb conditions (ACL rehabilitation, patellofemoral joint pain, exercise prescription and tendinopathies) and strives to keep up to date with current research in this field. Paul helps patients understand the underlying causes to their pain and symptoms with the aim of increasing a patient’s confidence in their mobility and ability to self-manage more effectively.
