Sue’s particular interests are nail surgery and the diabetic foot. These specialities will continue to form a key part of her continuing professional development (CPD). While maintaining these core interests, she enjoys nail reconstruction and verruca treatment as well as general podiatric care to the broadest spectrum of patients.

Registered Osteopath

Philip Ashcroft, our osteopath at Warley Grange Health, founded Osteopath Covent Garden in 2008 and is with us three days a week. He also has two central London practices- one next door to the Tate Britain and the other directly adjacent to Marylebone station. With consulting rooms for private treatment in London since 2008, he is trusted and considered a ‘safe pair of hands’ by many, including the Government and the entire entertainment industry. Philip treats using a wide range of osteopathic skills, and advanced massage techniques. In addition to treating the most common pain scenarios throughout the body, his particular professional interest is in migraine and its differentiation with headache. He delivered a low back pain treatment programme for the NHS in Essex (2008-2012) and in Richmond upon Thames (2014-2015). Patients welcome his friendly manner and his skill in explaining the reasons for pain, putting them at ease through a straightforward explanation of their problem. Following postgraduate training at the British Medical Acupuncture Society in 2008, medical acupuncture can be included when it is case appropriate and per the wishes of the patient.

Emily Curtin

Emily has been working at Warley Grange Health for a year now and has been involved in many aspects of clinic life including making this website. 

She works at the clinic on a Monday as and when required and the rest of the week spends her time at her own photography studio. As a receptionist she loves chatting with customers and makes the best cups of tea! 

While working at the clinic, Emily has really enjoyed learning about foot care and sometimes assists in Toe Nail Surgery when some time keeping is needed and is considering taking a toe nail cutting course. The new technology the clinic has is of particular interest to Emily due to her photography background – the ultrasound scanner is a favourite!
