Where do our fabulous physios disappear to when they leave us?
Simply put – most of them go home!
17.5 years… wow, what a stint! Jeremy (Jez) Parker’s reputation preceded him… except for a few years in the City, Jez spent his years at Harley St before we relocated to Fitzrovia. As he sets up on his own, we wish him all the best and a shorter commute!
It’s been 8.5 years since Hannah Allworth joined Six Physio Kensington, shortly afterwards stepping up to Clinic Director at Fitzrovia before moving back to Kensington post COVID. She’s taking a step-back from Physiotherapy to settle in the countryside with her family.
There must be something about 5 years… as we also say farewell to Caoimhe McNamara as she heads back to her homeland across the Irish Sea to settle down with her family. She was an integral part of the City teams, well known for her Women’s Health specialism.
Davide Tieppo has headed back to Melbourne after nearly 5 years, starting at Fitzrovia and then relocating to Kensington post COVID. He upskilled as a Specialist Hand Physio during his time with us, and we have no doubt he’ll walk straight into a job in his home town.
After 5 years we wave goodbye to Hayley Lord… an all-round enthusiast who had patients following her from clinic to clinic. An excellent rehab physio who trained in Women’s Health, we wish her all the best on her new direction into Management.
After 3 years as our rock-star Rehab Physio at Kensington and in the Virtual world we say farewell to Ali Hendrick as she heads home to Perth. With a mounting number of ex ‘SIX’ physios in Western Australia we should be opening a clinic over there!
Mark Golton joined us back in 2013 and worked in both the City and in the South West, being an integral part of our Exec team from Mar ’20. This management role inspired him to diversify away from a treating clinician and we wish him luck in his new role as Head of Orthopaedic Service Line at HCA.
The one and only Ben Marsh was with us for 7 years: working his way through Purple Physio, to Six Physio and being the youngest physio promoted to Clinic Director at Chelsea in August 2017. London may be losing his cheerful persona but his new patients & colleagues in the Countryside will benefit instead!
When Camilla Lawrence started at Six Physio in 2008 Women’s Health was a little-known service, but with her enthusiasm, hard work and belief in this Specialist service she leaves a legacy of 13 Women’s Health Physios working across every Clinic. She will be missed by the locals in Parsons Green but 13 years later the time has come for her family to relocate to the countryside. Good luck and don’t be a stranger!
Alex Hunter has worked across the vast majority of our Clinics in his 11 years: from setting up new clinics, to taking the Clinic Director role in 5 others including Parsons Green, where he lead from the front for his last 2 years. We wish Alex continued success as his family relocate to South Africa.
Not all our Physios work across City and SW, but after 4 years Sarah Bentley leaves from Kensington with a wealth of knowledge about the different patients we treat. We wish her all the best as she returns to the NHS.
With a reputation for awesome Physio and Consultants referring patients to him from across the City, Solomon Canevaro was with us for 10 years, only moving on when his family commitments in Italy meant the time had come for pastures new.
After nearly 10 years at Six Physio we say farewell to Lynne Cantwell: having worked across many of our Clinics, been Clinic Director at Fulham and empowered many of our Physios with her coaching skills, we wish her every success with her Performance career in Rugby.
Tim Galliver led the team at Kensington for all of his 30s… but everyone has to move on! After 12 years the opportunity arose for him to spread his wings and step up to Director at Harley St Medical Centre (UME Group). We wish him well and look forward to some two-way referrals in the near future!
After 4 years at Parsons Green, with a tiny stint in The City half way through, Luke Kellaway has turned his head to the analytics side of healthcare, with the aim of giving patients the best care possible within the NHS.
We say goodbye to Carla Lodewijks who ran away to join the SIX alumni, emigrating to Western Australia. After nearly 7 years looking after both Fleet St and Fitzrovia, we know she will be missed by patients and staff alike.
Beate Stindt has moved home to South Africa! During her 5 years at Fleet St this talented Physio was a Manual, Rehab, Pilates, Consultant Physio & Clinic Director. We wish her all the best setting up her own venture in Cape Town.
After 13 years we wave farewell to Fiona Troup. ‘She is amazing: positive, professional, knowledgable and caring’. We have no doubt she will be missed by all she crossed paths with during her time at Harley St & Fitzrovia.
Hayley Jasper, kept herself busy with Manual patients and full Pilates classes but after 5 years opted to move home to Cornwall to enjoy the slower pace of life…. who can blame her!
Richard Gonsalves – otherwise known as Pilates guru extraordinaire – was at Kensington for over 4 years, sharing his knowledge with so many patients and physios alike, but in June ’18 the time came for him to head home to Western Australia.
Lucy Warren wasn’t with us for long in W8, as her partner took a job in Hong Kong and she couldn’t stay behind! See you when you return Lucy…
Relocating from Canada to London, Erin Lahay was with us for 5 years – treating patients in SW3 and EC3. She was always volunteering and/or participating in Running and Tri events, spreading the word of SIX. In March 18 she wanted a change of scene and joined the team at Pure.
Helen Cooke was an asset to the team at Six Physio Leadenhall, training in Pilates and as a Bike specialist, but in Nov 2017 she decided to head back home to Ireland.
Staff and patients alike were sad to see Gary Jones leave Parsons Green, but after 8 years treating and making people smirk at this Brummie jokes, it was time to set up his own Clinic in his native Birmingham.
