Neil Averis


Meet Neil Averis-Director, Head of Medical

Who are you and what is your role at HSC?

I am the medical director and a fellow of the Royal College of GPs. I have a diploma in sports medicine and certificates in aviation and dive medicine. I have always had a strong professional and personal interest in fitness and sports, and believe that “exercise is medicine”.

What do you like?

My children have grown up which has allowed me to really “like” my bikes. I believe that n+1 is the correct number of bikes to own, where n=the currently owned number.

What are you passionate about in the business?

Exercise and pro-active health care medicine is what I enjoy most about my job. I also consider myself a role model for mixing health and sports.

Three things that represent you.

Jeans, My bike and Facebook.

Do you have any areas of specialty?

In medicine I have expertise in sports medicine and injury treatment, and enjoy working with my podiatry and physio colleagues on more difficult problems.

Our full medicals are the most thorough in this city and an excellent way of detecting and preventing early disease, we all know we should have one!
