Dr Christopher Murphy
MBBS, MSc, FRCP, CCT (Neurology)
I qualified from medical school in 1997. I initially began formal higher specialist training in Geriatric and General Internal Medicine in 2001, but switched to formal training in neurology in 2005. I gained my Completed Certificate of Training in Neurology in 2010 and began work as a Consultant Neurologist at Salford Royal Hospital in July 2010. I am particularly interested in Acute & Emergency Neurology and have a sub-specialist interest in Neurological Sleep Disorders.
I specialise in, the brain and the nervous system including, the spinal cord, the nerve roots, the peripheral nerves, the neuromuscular junctions and muscles.
I am the Clinical Governance Lead for the Acute Neurology Day Unit, in addition to the Local Negotiating Committee member at Salford Royal Hospital.

I live with my wife and three daughters in the Cheshire countryside. I have lived in the Greater Manchester area for nearly 20 years and have just made my first forays into starting a smallholding to run alongside my medical practice, aiming to grow a wide variety of fruit and vegetables and to keep livestock. I am a keen runner, time and daughters permitting (!), and also enjoy fell-walking and bird-watching.
