Dr Russell Young, Consultant Radiologist

I first became interested in Radiology whilst observing CT scanning on a surgical elective in Canada. I worked as a clinician in the UK and Australia, before returning to the UK to start training in Radiology. I developed an interest in musculoskeletal radiology early on, which complemented my sporting interests. After completing a specialist musculoskeletal radiology fellowship at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, I worked as a consultant radiologist at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon, which has excellent orthopaedic and radiology departments. More recently I have also been working in Cirencester and Oxford, and for GP Care throughout Gloucestershire. Whilst working for GP Care, many patients commented that they liked having ultrasound scans more locally. This gave me the idea of trying to provide a more local and personal ultrasound scan service. I also report MRI and CT scans, which can be arranged via Cobalt Health in Cheltenham, on request from your local health professional.

Clients About Us

I've been very happy with the treatment and service received from Five Valleys Physio. I'd used the same physiotherapist near work in Bristol for years and was worried about changing. Having now done so, the reputation of Five Valleys Physio from friends is well deserved and I'll definitely be back when I break myself again!
