Tony entered the healthcare profession after a long career with the Metropolitan Police, serving the people of London in various roles for nearly twenty years. He undertook three years of study for an acupuncture degree at the Northern College of Acupuncture, graduating with 1st class honours before establishing clinics in Cambridgeshire where he see’s patients for a wide range of physical and emotional health complaints.
Tony has a keen interest in research and evidence. He taught research skills on the Middlesex validated acupuncture degree course for the last five years and keeps an eye on the emerging science of acupuncture, integrating traditional and modern approaches to achieve the best clinical outcomes.
He is a strong voice on behalf of the traditional acupuncture profession having held directorships of both the British Acupuncture Council and the British Acupuncture Accreditation Committee.
Although he has a wide range of experience in general practise, Tony has a particular passion for mental health and is an active advocate and campaigner outside of clinical practise. In 2017 he founded Ely based charity Talking FreEly which he now runs as CEO on a voluntary basis. This work promotes a better understanding and acceptance of mental illness through everyday conversation which includes holding public events, visiting schools and “popping up” wherever there is an opportunity to “ get people talking”.
Outside of work Tony is kept busy with five children. He is studying Shotokan Karate and is currently working towards black belt”.
