Executive Director, The Primary Care & Community Neurology Society
Following the completion of a Neuroscience PhD in 1993, Neil moved into the field of medical education and communication. His work has taken him into various medical and healthcare fields, including endocrinology, immunology, psychology, rehabilitation, respiratory, gastro and neurology, In 2004, he set up the Primary care and Community Neurology Society in. Then in 2015, after a period of disturbing neurological symptoms, Neil was drawn into the world of trauma, when he received the news of a growth in his brain, found on an MRI Scan. Urgent brain surgery and a biopsy uncovered a non-malignant tumour on the pineal gland, which couldn’t be removed. In 2018 he started following the ketogenic diet and a mental fitness approach he formulated. In 2021, although the check-up scan indicated the tumour had grown since the operation, that growth slowed and since 2019/20 looks to have stopped.
