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.
