James Pullum, 26, is a ballet dancer who recently starred in Phantom of the Opera. Before taking on a lead role in West Side Story he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament and tore his meniscus during a dance class. He has been unable to work since and is receiving treatment at the ISEH.

"Dancing is what I love doing and it's my livelihood," he said. "It's really important that there is somewhere like the Institute of Sport Exercise and Health where I can get my treatment – especially on the NHS."
