Behind Blackheath Medico Legal Service:

Mark has 26 years’ experience as a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in musculoskeletal injury. He has two advanced qualifications in musculoskeletal diagnosis and treatment, and has conducted research into this field, which has been published internationally.

Mark took over running of the practice from the former lead Zena Schofield who retired in June 2018. Zena ran the practice successfully for over 30 years. We wish her well in her future endeavours.
