While training at Stockport College, Nick developed an interest in healing sports injuries, which led to orthopaedics in Manchester, then to Nick being the first blind person to take a medical science degree at Teeside University.

He said: “They told me I’d taken on an arduous challenge, and it was. Other people could skim-read medical journals to find the bits they need, but when you’re working with speech software you have to listen to the whole thing.

“With the hands-on stuff, you develop more attuned senses, but you have to back it up with clinical knowledge.”

His post university life has led him into work with elite footballers, marathon-runners and triathletes, and shifts with Buxton Rugby Club.

He said: “It surprised the players, they’d never seen a blind person on the pitch.”
