A Short Biography
Mark qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff in 1982. After a short spell working within south Wales consolidating his skills as a junior therapist at Llandough Hospital and Cardiff Royal Infirmary he then continued his NHS career moving to Leicester Royal Infirmary gaining valuable experience in the Sports Injuries Clinic and eventually becoming Senior Physiotherapist in charge of Physiotherapy Services in Trauma & Orthopaedics. During this time Mark also worked on a part - time basis as physiotherapist to Kettering Town Football Club and Leicester Panthers American Football Club.
In 1988 he made the transition from the NHS to work within professional sport with a full time position as team physiotherapist at Grimsby Town Football Club and then on to Leicester City Football Club. During this time he also set up his part time private clinic for members of the general public practising from his home firstly in Syston and then Queniborough. In 1993 he switched from football to rugby and became first team physiotherapist for Leicester Tigers Rugby Football Club overseeing their transition into the professional era in 1995 and continuing in this role until 2004 when he made the decision to transfer to working within his private practice full time.
Mark is originally from Scraptoft, Leicestershire and was educated at Beauchamp College, Oadby. He is married to Eileen and together they have two daughters. Although his participating days may be over Mark continues to enjoy a keen interest in all sport.

Over the years Mark has established good working contacts with the majority of General Practitioners and Hospital Consultants throughout Leicestershire and the surrounding areas.
Although we are unable to take NHS referrals at present we are aware that due to the waiting list for NHS physio services some patients may need help/advise/treatment whist awaiting their NHS appointment. Mark is able to commence interim physiotherapy and then transfer care across to your NHS physio complete with an up to date physiotherapy report to aid continuity of treatment.
MRI & X-rays
We are able to refer for independent MRI & X-ray investigations where appropriate.
Private Health Care
Mark is approved by all major private medical health insurance companies. Please note that you may be required to obtain a GP or Consultant referral for physiotherapy in order to commence any treatment. It is helpful to bring all insurance documents/details with you on your first treatment date to facilitate direct invoicing.
Please contact us on 0116 2606790 for up to date fees. Mark is a member of the Health Professions Council and is also a recognised physiotherapy provider for all major health care companies. Unfortunately we do not yet have the facility to accept payment by card.
We would welcome at least four hours notice if you cannot keep your appointment with Mark, otherwise a fee may be charged. Our clinic experience over the years has shown that four hours is enough notice for patients wishing to take a last minute appointment cancellation. However we do appreciate that non - attendances due to unforeseen circumstances do occur and in these instances any charges due will be at Marks discretion.
Children & Adolescents
Mark is experienced in assessing & treating paediatric and adolescent musculo-skeletal disorders/ sporting injuries. Any minor under 16 years of age must be accompanied by parent/guardian/responsible adult to chaperone them throughout their appointment session.
Wherever possible it is preferable for Mark to assess and treat your condition at either clinic where he has use of treatment room facilities and a choice of various medical equipment in order to maximise your physiotherapy session. However home visits can be arranged if necessary, depending on clinic workload at the time.
