Meet Our Physiotherapist Kim McCreith

Posted on 26th July 2016 by

Kim McCreith Physio goPhysioMeet one of our physiotherapists, Kim McCreith.

I graduated in 2010, from Coventry University – since then, I’ve completed my APPI Pilates class instructor training and qualified in using Acupuncture, both of which are really useful in my work here at goPhysio!

In the last couple of years, I’ve started specialising in musculo-skeletal issues during pregnancy and post-natally. I have done some additional training with the APPI to teach Ante & Post Natal Pilates and also with the Pelvic Partnership, who do great job supporting women with SPD and PGP.

Outside of work, I love spending time in my garden and baking (then eating!) all sorts of cakes and biscuits. I also spend a lot of time on the side lines of the Rugby pitch, supporting my other half and fixing his injuries.

Paul Baker – Clinical Director goPhysio

Posted on 25th July 2016 by

Paul Baker Clinical Physiotherapy Director goPhysioHow long have you been a qualified Physiotherapist?

I’ve been a physiotherapist for nearly 20 years, qualifying in 1997 and opening goPhysio in 2001.

Why did you want to be a physio?

I was originally attracted to a career in physio for a wide variety of reasons, namely;

  • I was a keen sportsman and I participated in a wide variety of sport and exercise at school, including the Irish traditional sport of Gaelic football!
  • I was always interested in a healthcare type profession and helping people but was never keen on actually working in a hospital (hence private practice had always been my dream).
  • I wanted to have a career that used both my hands and my brain.
  • I enjoyed the fact that ‘outpatient’ physio was responsible for both the assessment and treatment of conditions and responsible for the whole patient journey from injury to recovery and involved the whole rehabilitation process.
  • My father had his own business, so I grew up around customers and business talk, so always wanted to have my own business one day.

Essentially, I was one of the lucky ones at school who always knew exactly what I wanted to do. I am very happy with my choice and creating goPhysio has realised my dream and I love being part of a profession, that 20 years later is still interesting, varied and rewarding.

So What do you do on a daily basis?

I particularly enjoy the diversity between my various clinical and non-clinical roles as Clinical Director at goPhysio. Day to day I am responsible for the clinical training of our team. I also still have a large role in continued clinical practice, and see a full list of patients every week. I am jointly responsible for the strategic business development at goPhysio and continually look at ways to improve and grow.

So ultimately my days are very varied and interesting, with many curve balls being thrown at me with the business mangement, whilst taking care of a wide range of interesting patients at different stages of their rehabilitation.

What’s your approach to patient care?

My philosophy is quite simple and is reflected in how we operate at goPhysio. Essentially we’ve setup the business to solve the day-to-day hassles of patients getting access to a quality physiotherapy service, at a moment’s notice.

We aim to be the first choice for local injured people, helping our patients achieve an active positive lifestyle, pain and injury free. This involves focusing and investing in our team, who in turn are best equipped to take care  of our patients, going the extra mile and keeping their promises in every interaction, optimising their recovery.

What hobbies or interest’s do you have outside work?

I love to keep active and enjoy taking on a new physical challenge! Over the years I’ve participated in a wide variety of sports for purely enjoyment & fitness, namely gaelic football, hurling, running, golf, soccer, Cross Fit, mountain biking, scuba diving, road cycling, kitesurfing, wake boarding and skiing, to name a few!

How can you help me?

Regardless of your background, lifestyle or sporting preference, I have a wide range of experience to help solve your injury problems and concerns and get you back to participating in the activities you enjoy.


Jonathan Callen – Podiatrist

Posted on 25th July 2016 by

Jon Callen Chiropodist and Podiatrist goPhysioI initially achieved my state registration in 1985 and added my BSc (Hons) degree in Podiatry in 2001 from Plymouth university. I continue to be involved in ongoing training and innovation in Podiatry as Chairman of the Hampshire Branch of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.

I have worked in the NHS (1985-2015) and private sector (1996 onwards) and have experience of many kinds of patient and conditions including those with high risk conditions such as Diabetes, minor surgery for ingrowing toe nails and provision of foot orthoses.

I understand that some patients are anxious or unsure on their initial visit and I aim to put everyone at ease and to explain treatment options carefully. Podiatry will cure some patients of their problem, others will seek ongoing care to ensure their feet are comfortable to enable them to stay active. Both categories of patients are welcome.

Outside the Podiatry clinic I am a keen walker and enjoy beautiful countryside in which I experiment with my basic photography skills. I am a member of Eastleigh Baptist Church and a long suffering supporter of Plymouth Argyle. I keep in touch with most sports and current affairs in Britain and around the world.

If you’d like Jon’s help to take care of your feet or sort out a specific problem you can call the clinic on 023 8025 3317 to make an appointment or book your appointment online here.
