Working from the herbal clinic and dispensary at Nether Edge Herbarium, Phil offers Western herbal medicine consultations with an integrative approach to conventional healthcare. He is particularly interested in helping those who need to combine a herbal approach with their conventional medical treatment.
After graduating in physiology and medicine, Phil practised family medicine as a GP in Sheffield for thirty-four years. A growing interest in plant-based holistic care resulted in an honours degree in Herbal Medicine at Lincoln College. Expecting to emerge as a doctor with additional skills in herbal medicine, he is now proud to realise that he is a herbalist with previous experience of general practice.
With this unique background he is keen to promote herbal medicine and develop local and national collaborations with other healthcare professionals.
