Dr Timothy Harrower

BSc (Med Hon), MB ChB, MRCP, PhD


Dr Timothy Harrower gained his medical degree at the University of Cape Town and completed his pre-registration posts in Northampton and Reading before joining a medical rotation in Cambridge. After gaining membership at the Royal College of Physicians he was awarded a Welcome Trust Clinical Research Grant. This allowed him to undertake research into neural stem cell biology and the mechanisms of neural transplant rejection at the Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair (University of Cambridge) where he read for a PhD in neuroscience. In addition he was involved in managing all the patients with Huntington's Disease who had received neural transplants.

In 2007 he was appointed Consultant Neurologist at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and as a visiting neurologist at North Devon District Hospital. He also runs the Mardon Neuro-rehabilitation Centre (sited adjacent to Nuffield Health Exeter Hospital). He is currently the principle investigator in three main projects including investigations in optimising botulinum toxin injections in cervical dystonia.

Although his core practice is general Neurology, he has a specialist interest in headache management, movement disorders and demyelinating conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis. He has set up a specific Huntington's Disease service. Identifying a need for a local spasticity service, he is setting up the East and North Devon spasticity management service.
