Scott brings his unique perspective of being a patient, as well as a healthcare professional, to our training and research.  Scott graduated as a Physiotherapist from Keele University in 2006 and shortly afterwards suffered a Stroke, causing significant physical impairment as well as loss of vision. Since his Stroke, Scott has worked in the NHS and voluntary sectors. Scott first found out about the Bridges approach in 2014 whilst working for the Wandsworth Community Neuro team.

Scott shares his inspiring story in our new Building bridges after stroke book.

Scott is described by the team as incredibly perceptive, resourceful and patient. He brings an invaluable insight to Bridges and he is everyone’s number one sounding board. He is so humble about all of his achievements and always brings a positive vibe with him – even on a bad day. He is endlessly generous and full of random knowledge that would make him an asset to any pub quiz team. Did we mention his patience?

Also – our resident office DJ with excellent music choices.

    As a team we share the same ethos and philosophy that drives our passion to create the best experience and environment for patients to live well. Bridges provide opportunities for both patients and professionals to work collaboratively to enhance self-management skills, knowledge and confidence.
