Dr Ealing’s early neurological experience was in London gaining his MRCP(UK) in 1996. Appointed to the post of Wellcome Research Training Fellow at the University of Oxford, he successfully submitted his doctorate thesis, before moving to the north-west in 2001 to continue his neurological training at Preston, and then Manchester.
He was delighted to be appointed Consultant Neurologist at the Greater Manchester Neurosciences Centre based at Salford Royal in October 2005.
Although experienced in the full range of neurological conditions, his specialist work at Hope Hospital is in motor neurone disease, neurofibromatosis and neurogenetics. He has fostered strong links with allied specialists in Neuroradiology, Neurosurgery and Neurorehabilitation as well as an active role in clinical research and undergraduate education in his role as a Lecturer at the University of Manchester.
In the few hours of the day not working, he runs up hills (apparently as relaxation), and volunteers as medic for the Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team.
