Chris Simcox BSc MSc

Physiotherapy Lecturer


Lecturer in physiotherapy at Sheffield Hallam since January 2022. Working clinically since 2002 specialising in Neurological rehabilitation, where I enjoy working with a range of neurological conditions such as Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke and Brain injury.


I qualified as a physiotherapist from Keele university in 2002 and worked in the NHS for the next 18 years, specialising in Neurological Rehabilitation. I have gained experience working across many areas of neurological rehabilitation including community services, acute stroke, long term rehabilitation and outpatient settings. I completed my MSc at Keele University in Neurological Rehabilitation (2015).

I started working in Academia for Sheffield Hallam University as a Physiotherapy Lecturer in Jan 2022 providing teaching support on a number of modules with specialist input on the modules requiring neurological content.

I have a keen interest in working with individuals after stroke and have been a clinical lead in a community stroke service, I also have a special interest in supporting individuals with long term neurological conditions such as Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis. Additionally for many years I have been a therapy injector of Botulinum toxin for the spasticity management of neurological conditions.

As well as my experience within the NHS I have also worked in a variety of private health settings and currently work as private community physiotherapist across the Peak District supporting mainly individuals with Neurological conditions.
