Simon completed his BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy at Bournemouth University, UK. After graduation Simon started working in the NHS as a junior physiotherapist where he undertook a variety of roles fundamental in his professional development. Following the NHS Simon was able to hone in on his interest in orthopaedics, musculoskeletal outpatients and sports injuries and was lucky enough to work at the BMI Bath Clinicwith some very highly skilled physiotherapists, surgeons and nursing staff who helped support his leaning and development. Alongside working at the clinic Simon also worked on weekends and evenings with a local rugby side providing pitch side physiotherapy and assessment and treatment sessions at training.
In 2011 Simon decided to expand his experience and horizons and following a discussion with a friend who lived in Dubai he decided a move may be what he needed. Six weeks later Simon was all packed and moved to Dubai where he was offered a job as senior musculoskeletal physiotherapist working for a major hospital and its satellite clinics. After only one year in the role a job opened up at Dubai Physiotherapy and Family Medicine Clinic and due to the excellent reputation of the company and the opportunities it presented Simon accepted this role and has remained working there as a senior physiotherapist for the past 3 years.
Along side the clinic work at Dubai Physiotherapy Simon was also offered a job as the UAE National Rugby Team Physiotherapist a role which he accepted and continued for two seasons. He also undertook a brief role working with a springboard diving squad in Dubai and is often in attendance at many of the triathlons and marathons in Dubai as well as the annual Dubai Rugby 7’s tournament providing physiotherapy support.
Alongside his clinic work and sports commitments Simon is also currently studying at Bath University (UK) for his MSc in Sports Physiotherapy.
Simon enjoys travelling and being outdoors. He enjoys jogging, swimming, playing golf and skiing.
