Lesley Griggs BSc(Hons)Ost. MSCC
Lesley heads up the team at Nutley Lane. She qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 1995, and brought Nutley Lane Osteopaths to its current building in 2000.
Lesley is passionate about osteopathy and the benefits it can bring to patients. She has done extensive post graduate training with the Sutherland Cranial College and has a high level of expertise in this field of osteopathy. Lesley is also a specialist lecturer at the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine, teaching paediatric and obstetric osteopathy to final year graduates.
Lesley is dedicated to all aspects of clinical practice and is proud of the true family nature of the practice at Nutley Lane. Lesley believes that for the profession to move forward into the future, senior members of the profession must support their junior colleagues in their early years of practice life. This has lead to being able to attract high quality osteopaths to work in the practice at Nutley Lane.
