During the pandemic Gill worked for NHS Track and Trace before jumping back into the world of physiotherapy with Neuro Physio at Home in 2021.

David McGrew - Rehabilitation Instructor
David started working as a Physiotherapy Technical instructor in 2017 for the NHS. After a short time in post, he found his interest working with people with Neurological deficits growing. In 2019, he joined the Neuro Physio at home team as an associate and began working as a Rehabilitation Instructor. This is when his passion started to develop for all things Neuro.
Completing Level 2 in PD Warrior in 2021 allowed him to upskill, increase his knowledge and understanding of Parkinson's along with the benefits of the PD warrior exercise philosophy. He is currently undertaking the Level 4 Strength & Conditioning coaching certificate in order to add to his portfolio to deliver specialised and tailored exercise plans to benefit people living with neurological conditions, help improve their mindset and ultimately aim to enhance their quality of life.
