NEIL HARRIS (MISCP)
SENIOR CHARTERED PHYSIOTHERAPIST
Neil Harris has had a varied career in finance and communications both in Dublin and around the world before returning to full-time study back in 2014 to follow his ambition of being a physiotherapist. As well as learning the latest evidence based assessment and treatment approaches, he worked in many different hospital settings including intensive care, stroke and surgical wards, acute mental health admissions and musculoskeletal outpatient departments. He graduated with a First Class Honours degree in BSc Physiotherapy from the University of Brighton in 2017.
Neil is passionate about helping people and puts the patient at the heart of every consultation, taking time to understand the history of a presenting condition and the impact this has on daily life. Having established what the patient wants to achieve, those goals will be the focal point to discuss and agree an individual treatment plan that fits with the patient’s lifestyle. He has developed a particular clinical interest in shoulder, back and foot conditions but can help with any musculoskeletal problem.
Having played semi-professional soccer in his earlier years, Neil now enjoys the more social aspect of playing 5-a-side with friends. He also makes time for running, cycling, swimming, going to the gym and just generally being active and outdoors as often as possible. Born in Norwich in the UK, Neil has travelled extensively but now calls Ireland home and has spent time getting involved in the community by volunteering with the Special Olympics.
