Some background info about Fletch...
Fletch grew up in Wellington before completing his Physiotherapy degree at the University of Sydney, graduating in 1999 and receiving the NSW Health Rural Allied Health Scholarship. After graduating, he returned to the central west, working at the Dubbo and Mudgee Hospitals and in private clinics.
He was then able to broaden his experience working in the United Kingdom, where he worked in a private clinic which included services to the military, elite dancers and performers, and elite pathway athletes. He also worked as the sole therapist in a remote hospital in northern Scotland.
Returning to Sydney, Fletch worked in Occupational Rehabilitation, gaining experience in occupational injury management, return to work planning, and development and implementation of Functional Capacity Evaluations.
Deciding to return to Wellington to raise his family, Fletch worked locally at the Wellington Hospital. Opportunity at Dubbo Hospital saw him made Deputy-in-Charge of the Physiotherapy Department and the Senior Physiotherapist in the Emergency Department.
After 10 years gaining these valuable experiences, Fletch worked in partnership to establish and manage a new private clinic in Dubbo. This clinic grew to become one of the largest in Dubbo, employing numerous Allied Health staff.
Fletch always held a desire to base his Physiotherapy services within his local community, and the opening of the Old Printery Wellness Space provided the perfect opportunity to do this. Establishing Wellington Physiotherapy in 2019, Fletch now brings his broad skillset to the Wellington Community.
When not at work Fletch enjoys spending time with his family and supporting and coaching his kid’s sport. Otherwise, he can usually be found on the golf course, water-skiing, supporting the Sydney Swans and hoping that someday the North Sydney Bears will return to the NRL.
