In My Down Time…..

During the hours I’m not working, I like to spend time and relax by playing the guitar, cycling, water skiing, snow skiing and spending time with my wife Debbie and my grown-up children Arabella and Harrison (without forgetting Bonnie and Boo our two little dogs of course!).

I also support several charities including The Outward Bound Trust, Oxfam and Leicester’s Air Ambulance Service.

“Glenn was able to resume training and for the first time in two years, run and kick freely. The end result was his best season ever as Albion won League One and he scored 22 goals. Now it was the adulation of the Seagulls’ fans echoing around the ground.”

Glenn Murray, Brighton Albion

“Undergoing surgery is a daunting prospect for most people. I am dedicated to providing my patients with the best possible care, and I believe that understanding the process is as vital to the service I deliver as the diagnosis and surgery itself.”
