Will, the newest addition to our Physio team, answered a few questions:
What are your sporting interests?
I am passionate about all things sport but football, particularly Liverpool FC, takes up too much of my spare time! Prior to focusing on my career as a physiotherapist, I played football to a high standard, which I still enjoy doing whenever possible.

What attracted you to Eastbourne and working at Sportswise?
Shortly after moving to East Sussex, I quickly established where the highest standard physiotherapy was offered in the area. I was impressed by the integrated approach to patient care and the range of clinical services on offer at Sportswise therefore, as soon as a position became available, I jumped at the opportunity.

What do you like doing when you are not working?
I love spending time with my three children and exploring the beautiful Sussex countryside. I also cycle whenever I can and, since moving to East Sussex from London, I’m slowly adapting to the more hilly surroundings!
