Dr Dan was friendly and chilled and I felt confident in his experience and decision making. Very professional.
Mel, Dream Challenges Expedition Leader 2023
Daniel appeared knowledgeable, supportive, reactive to situations and friendly. He made me feel encouraged and supported.
Extremely professional with the right amount of humour and social skills to support the team. You showed extreme amounts of patience with those who were under prepared for the challenge. A great addition to the team in both a medical and social capacity. Thanks for your support
I would be very happy if you were supporting any future trips that I will undertake

‘I had a really good time despite the heat and storm - which was well beyond anyone's control. It was tough but a great crowd of trekkers with good supportive doctors that were calm and patient.’

"I have had the immense pleasure of working with Daniel on number of Challenge events. Daniel has been employed as the Doctor and his role covered not only the medical side of looking after the participant’s but also managing and coordinating the medical team on the event. He is a dedicated professional and is also a great team player. I would recommend Daniel to any one who needs excellent medical cover and superb organisational skills."
Across the Divide
I worked with Dan in the Yukon. During our trip wildfires were a significant risk. Dan's role in the management of these risks was crucial to the success of the expedition. Throughout the trip I worked with Dan in many different setting, and always found him an excellent teammate, medic and a genuinely great person to work with. I hope to work with Dan again on a future expedition.
British Exploring Canadian Yukon Expedition 2019
"With TrailMed, I have now worked with Daniel on several large events in the last couple of years, including the gruelling 9 day "Ride Across Britain" from Land's End to John O'Groats. We have worked together in many diverse and often remote environments and treated a large range of pre-hospital presentations. Daniel has proved himself to be a thoroughly competent and knowledgeable pre-hospital colleague, always keen to get stuck in and help, and one of our "go to" clinicians when the going gets tough. If you need a doctor with a love of the great outdoors and a comprehensive clinical skillset, then Daniel is definitely that person. I look forward to working together on the next big adventure and hope that it is soon!"
"I have known Dr Grace since our first expedition together in 2019. We were working with the British Exploring Society in complementary roles; he as Chief Medic, and I as Chief Scientist. The conditions were basic, but that didn’t deter Dan from deploying sharp wit, a likeable personality and exceptional professionalism. Dan made a number of medical calls throughout the expedition, each with sound judgement under difficult circumstances."
