He helped the RHH develop guidelines for assessing legal decision-making competence and provided regular reports and input to the Guardianship and Administration Board of Tasmania. By 2009 he had formed the RHH Psychology Department and became its first manager. Toby also pursued research interest and was an associate Investigator on a range of research projects through the Wicking Dementia Centre and UTAS where he supervised students completing Masters and PhD research projects into cognition in Parkinson’s Disease.
In 2014 Toby went into full-time private practice, seeing clients from several medical centres and community centres in the Hon Valley. Toby sees clients aged 15 and above. He has a special interest in rehabilitation and geriatric populations.
