Born in Liverpool, Keith graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 1987 and began his career as a Junior Physiotherapist at King’s College Hospital London, covering the full range of Physiotherapy specialities. Following this, Keith travelled extensively throughout Asia and Australasia and gained valuable experience in large teaching hospitals in Melbourne and Sydney. On returning to England he took a senior role at Southmead Hospital for 2 years, allowing him to consolidate and develop the knowledge and experience gained on his travels.
In 1991 Keith was approached to take the Head Physiotherapy role at Bristol Rovers. Supporting the team when they took part in the Division 2 Playoffs at Wembley was a significant highlight of his time in this role. Five years later, he was recruited as Head Physiotherapist at Bristol Rugby. He worked there until 2003 and was delighted to accompany the team to their 2002 Championship final versus Gloucester at Twickenham.
Since 2003, Keith has dedicated himself to establishing Keith James Physiotherapy Clinic in North Bristol, building a team of therapists with the skills and experience to meet growing demand for physiotherapy and related services. Over the last 25 years the clinic has established its reputation as one of the leading providers of physiotherapy, acupuncture and massage therapy in Bristol.
In addition to his work at the clinic, Keith is Chairman of PhysioNet Bristol, a cooperative made up of 25 other Bristol, Gloucester and Somerset clinics. Currently the cooperative has several contracts, including a large NHS contract, providing out of hours Physiotherapy assessment for primary care patients, throughout the region. Keith also continues his role on the board of directors at Litfield House, where he has previously practised and has been Chairman since 2012.
Keith enjoys golf, fresh air and keeping fit. He has run a couple of marathons (slowly) and enjoys spending time with his wife Heather and their two lovely daughters.
