I am passionate about achieving the best outcomes for patients in my care and I was particularly impressed by the commitment shown by Christchurch Group towards providing high quality specialist care, while ensuring patients feel listened to and valued.
“I am looking forward to getting to know my new colleagues and working with them to provide effective neuro rehab.”
Matt is a qualified Physiotherapist working within brain injury rehabilitation. For the last 8 years, Matt has not only maintained his clinical skills but has been part of a very successful senior management team.

“The healthcare sector is continually evolving and has been a key part of my career to date, so I’m pleased to be able to continue my affiliation and look forward to building some excellent relationships with patients and organisations in the local community.”
Richard Mckenzie, CEO of Christchurch Group, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Denise and Matt to join our team. They both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience that can do nothing but strengthen our senior leadership team and most importantly, benefit the many patients we support on a daily basis.”
