We thought it may be nice to re-introduce some of the familiar faces here at Fay Pedler clinic and welcome the new ones to you also!
Today we catch up with one of Fay Pedler Clinics’ owners, Duncan.
What is your background?
Originally from Somerset I moved to Devon to attend University where I studied Sports Science and Coaching with Information Technology. Following University, I worked as a physiotherapy assistant and decided after a short while to become a physiotherapist, completing my degree at the University of Plymouth in 2008.
What areas have you previously worked in?
My first employment once qualified as a physiotherapist was with Totnes and Dartmouth Community Hospitals before transferring to Derriford Hospital where I completed my junior rotations. I specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and am now a Team Lead Physiotherapist for University Hospitals Plymouth NHS trust. Alongside this I have worked at the Fay Pedler clinic for six years where you will find me on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
What is your role at Fay Pedler clinic?
I am one of the three Directors at the clinic and a practising physiotherapist. I have a special interest in hip pathology, muscle imbalances and normal movement. I am also responsible for the social media platform content keeping our patients up to date with practice news.
What are you most proud of?
Apart from my family, I am most proud my recent success at the local rugby club where I kicked a rugby ball in a bin from 10 metres and won a bottle of wine for my better half.
What’s the best thing about being part of the Fay Pedler team?
Wednesday night business meetings – cider and pizza with these two legends!
If you weren’t a member of the Fay Pedler Team what would you be?
A tree surgeon………
Or maybe not!
If you could share a bottle of something with any 3 people in the world, who would they be?
What is your favourite song(s)?
Listening to Mista Jam classic dance anthems on radio one, trust me you have to listen before you form an opinion of me!
Where in the world is top of your list to visit?
I would like to canoe in the Norwegian Fjords observing killer whales.
What is the one thing that may surprise people about you?
When I was younger, I was a very fussy eater. My Sunday roast consisted of 9 Yorkshire puddings with tomato ketchup. Before you ask, no, this is not the case now.
