Tel: 01908 732161

Hi I’m Gareth, your support coordinator.

I sustained my injury in September 2014 while cycling home from work. I don’t remember the accident apart from being in A&E and then in intensive care, where I was told I had dislocated my spine at T3, leaving me with limited mobility and sensation from the chest down.

If you’ve recently become injured, already living with a spinal cord injury, or are close to someone who is, you’re in the right place.

Book an appointment with me here and I can refer you to the most suitable services available locally and nationally and offer my insight and experience into life with a spinal cord injury.

Just choose an available slot below and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
