Director, Person-Centred Neurosciences Society
For the last 7 years, as some people reading this will know, I have been living with the diagnosis of a brain tumour. Back in 2015, that traumatising experience drove a passion to become more trauma-informed, which included listening to other’s lived experiences. During that period I have been applying that learning to my immunology and neurosciences training as well as my health professional education work. That work has included founding and running the P-CNS, which is also known as Person-Centred Neurosciences Society and in 2022 launching the Lifestyle Health Foundation. It was following the completion of a Neuroscience PhD in 1993 in the field of neuroimmunology that Neil moved into the field of medical education and communication, setting up Innervate Ltd in 2001. His work has taken him into various medical and healthcare fields, including endocrinology, immunology, psychology, rehabilitation, respiratory, gastro and neurology. It was in 2004 that Neil stimulated and founded the the Primary Care Neurology Society and over a number of years, the Society has evolved, with it taking on the identity of the Person-Centred Neurosciences Society during 2020/21.
