Healthcare Professionals

I am a firm believer in a collaborative approach to healthcare

The best results happen in the sweet spot where a great doctor works with a great therapist and a great patient.

Referring patients to me

I would love to help you to get your patients better, so if they have long-term or complex problems, please do send them my way – I have a lot of tools in my “clinical toolbox” and love a challenge.

If you refer a patient to me, my team will be in touch to ask for any information you can give me (such as clinic letters and MRI reports) – or if you prefer to be proactive, please send anything you have to help@nellmead.com where my team will ensure I receive everything in good time to be able to prepare.

If you are happy to discuss the case in person or over the phone, please just let my team know and we will make this happen.

I also love to get to know the other members of my patients’ teams, so if we do not already know each other when you refer a patient to me, I will probably want to get in touch and ideally visit you in clinic or in theatre, and/or meet up for a coffee. Alternatively, you are very welcome to visit me, with or without our mutual patient! I believe that the better we know and trust each other, the more effectively we can help our patients.

Learning with me

I offer “taster” training in the two main physiotherapeutic philosophies I follow (Diane Lee’s Integrated Systems Model and Sarah Key’s Five Stages of Back Pain), and in manual treatment techniques – either 1:1 or for small groups.

I can accommodate individuals at Victoria Avenue; if you would like to organise a small training group (up to 15 students) then I can come to you.

Shadowing me

Depending on my patients’ consent, I am happy to offer shadowing opportunities to individual work experience students who are keen to study physiotherapy at university; to undergraduate or postgraduate students; or to interested healthcare professionals.

If you would like to observe me in clinic, please send me a message using the button below.

I do receive a lot of requests, so if you are a work experience student or undergraduate, please include your CV and a covering letter explaining why you want to observe my work and (if work experience) why you are interested in studying physiotherapy.

Please note that I am not able to offer practical placements or internships.

If you have any questions feel free to message me...

The clinic is open!

(online treatment still available)

The Prime Minister’s announcement on 1 Nov was clear that medical services should continue, and that people who need medical appointments should continue to attend them. Therefore the clinic will remain open, with everything wipe-clean and COVID-safe.

"Virtual first" continues...

However, the current government advice is that I have to see patients online before I can see you in clinic, and that I should only see you face to face (or mask to mask!) if we both agree that the benefits of hands-on treatment outweigh the risks of coronavirus transmission.  If hands-on treatment is not the most appropriate option for you, then I will continue to offer online treatment for the foreseeable future.

So please call my team on 0207 175 0150 and book your physio appointment as usual – or to read more about the COVID-safe measures we’re taking, please click the button to continue reading.
