He gave up flying in response to a call to Christian mission and medical services, and qualified as an ordained Methodist Minister and then a Medical doctor,  and served his Internship in the No. 2 Military Hospital in South Africa, where he developed an early interest in general surgery and trauma.

He then served as a Mission Doctor for 3 years at the Bethesda Mission Hospital , Zululand, in a  remote part of southern Africa, where he gained invaluable experience in surgery, obstetrics and rural medicine.

He underwent further Vocational Training at the Cecilia Makiwane Hospital in East London where he spent 4 years rotating through medicine, paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology, general surgery, eye surgery and orthopoedics. During this period he continued his post-graduate studies, followed by several years in Private Family Practice in East London, South Africa.

While in Canada, he joined the Medical Unit of the University of Manitoba , and served as a Fly-in-Physician, flying to isolated communities in Northern Manitoba.

Neville arrived in Ireland from Canada in 2004 to take up an appointment in Dublin, and then joined a Wexford practice in 2005-2006. In 2007 he relocated to Maynooth, and opened the Leinster Medical Clinic, with the intention of establishing an Integrative Medical Model which focused on Preventative Medical protocols, as well as providing primary and secondary medical care for private patients.
He became a naturalised Irish citizen in 2013 and has made Ireland his home.

Neville believes that the prevailing medical paradigm is severely limited by its singular focus on disease, rather than on opportunities, and the potential, for creating health and  promoting wellness.

“He believes that the future of medicine lies in the field of Nutrigenomics and Orthomolecular Medicine, which explores the science of nutritional regulation of genetic expression for health and disease.

The application of these principles is already visible in the field of nano-technology, where the transfer of molecular energy from microscopic nutrients to human cells can be effected via non-transdermal skin patches applied to pre-determined sites on the body.

These futuristic applications hold great promise for the goal of non-pharmalogical interventions in the pursuit of optimal health and wellness”
