Dr John Mottershead

Dr J MottersheadDr John Mottershead studied medicine at Oxford University and carried out research on MRI scanning and multiple sclerosis at the Institute of Neurology in London. He trained in clinical neurology before taking up a post as consultant neurologist at the Greater Manchester Neurosciences Centre in 2002 where he worked as a neurologist with a sub specialty clinic in MS, largely dealing with disease modifying treatments. In 2009, he moved to Dunedin and he is a consultant neurologist at Dunedin School of Medicine with a special interest in multiple sclerosis.
