Dr Jan Coebergh studied undergraduate medicine at Newcastle University and worked there as a house officer. His neurology training he undertook in The Hague, The Netherlands and he has worked as a Consultant Neurologist in the NHS at Ashford/St Peter’s Hospitals since January 2012 where he has a specialist Movement Disorders clinic and is lead for the neurosciences department. He also works as a Honorary Consultant Neurologist at Atkinson Morley Regional Neuroscience Centre at St Georges Hospital, Tooting where he has a clinic in Functional Neurological disorders, but also sees Huntington’s and Wilson’s disease patients. He does stroke on-call work.
In his clinical practice he tries to combine the patient care skills which he has learnt from the best consultants with a robust approach to diagnostic work.
Outside the clinic he has a keen interest in medical education and research, with many publications and with projects in musical hallucinations and the recognition of sound in dementia. He co-authored a chapter in the prestigious Handbook of Clinical Neurology on consciousness and the neurological examination in the Oxford Handbook of Neuropsychiatry.
