Peter Hartley, physiotherapist at Physiotherapy Barnsley

MCSP, HCPC, Senior Advanced Practitioner, Musculoskeletal Specialist. 

Peter graduated at Pinderfields College of physiotherapy in 1992, he’s been a practicing physiotherapist for more than 30 years. He’s a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

After graduation he practiced as a physiotherapist with the NHS at Castleford, Pontefract and Wakefield hospitals before he moved to Bupa in Elland and not long after becoming the department manager. He has made many appearances on Sky sports whilst working in the rugby league for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and Castleford Panthers. Many professional sports players still travel to Peter for treatment, including some well-known football and rugby professionals.

Peter founded Physiotherapy Barnsley and has been running this private physiotherapy clinic for over 20 years, he’s very passionate about what he does, he takes pride in the quality of his work which is clearly illustrated by the fact that he has never advertised his services in the 20 years he has been running his business, his patients have grown from word of mouth referrals alone.

His most recent personal achievements are passing his 5th Dan Karate in 2015, and winning the national karate championships at age 56. He has practiced martial arts since he was 15 years old, he’s a qualified instructor teaching for more than 25 years, as a black belt in traditional Japanese Karate.

Peter qualified as an industrial chemist when he left school and he spent much of his early career at Hepworth Pipe Company. Between then and going back to school to learn Physiotherapy he has had many businesses including a poultry farm and a construction firm, he’s renovated classic cars for a living including a VW beetle VW camper van and Morris Minor, before finding his true love for physiotherapy or fixing people.

Those who already know Peter will also know that he can’t keep still, every 5 minutes of his time is filled with something. In the past 8 years he has renovated 4 houses as a hobby. He loves to build things and he loves to fix things and people and that’s why he’s a physiotherapist, also known as Pete Physio. 

A proud dad and grandad, Peter loves watching Rugby, growing his own vegetables, and he loves the challenge of renovating properties.
