Get to know Peter! Q&A…

Why did you become a Physiotherapist? Because I wanted to do something useful for a living, and not sit behind a desk all day. I wanted to try and add some value and be helpful to people when they are struggling.

Where would we find you in your spare time? Well, probably playing golf if the weather is decent. If not I will probably be cooking up some scheme to improve what we do!
