Hilary Percival, a senior partner at Kendal House Clinics, was recently invited to the Russian Academy of Osteopathic Medicine in St. Petersburgh, Russia.
She was invited to teach paediatric osteopathy to range of undergraduates and qualified medical practitioners at the prestigious academy due to her extensive knowledge and experience of the subject. She has been practising osteopathy for children for over 25 years based at clinics in Clitheroe and Longridge.
Hilary said, “It was an amazing experience to teach such a large range of students including surgeons, neurologists and doctors. There is a real thirst for knowledge and desire from the whole medical community in Russia to supplement their skills and osteopathy is one of the areas they are keen to learn more about.”
“The level of knowledge at the academy was incredible and their understanding of anatomy in particular was very impressive. The students were incredibly kind and were desperate to learn. I was very lucky to be given several gifts including fabulous local honey.”
Whilst in St Petersburgh, Hilary enjoyed visiting some of the cities amazing buildings as well as a VIP trip to the ballet.
Hilary and her husband Robin have been working in Clitheroe at the Chatburn Road clinic for over 25 years and also have a clinic in Longridge to enable them to reach a wider number of patients across Lancashire. Hilary, who qualified in 1988, has a particular interest in treating children from birth upwards as well as women during pregnancy. She offers free baby checks up to the age of six months, a time that can be vital for good health in later life.
