    He has a wide interest in general diagnostic neurology, and since 1985 in the NHS has provided an inpatient and outpatient general neurology service at the Homerton University Hospital and has also developed a special interest in rehabilitation after stroke and head injury. He is a founder member and Clinical Lead for the Acute Brain Injury unit at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, a 15 bedded unit providing acute inpatient rehabilitation for patients after vascular and traumatic brain injury, and Lean Clinician to the Homerton REgional Neurological Rehabilitation Unit, a 24 bedded unit serving a population of 3 million, and providing early inpatient rehabilitation.

    His research has focused on the physiological mechanisms and the management of neurological and functional recovery after brain injury including stroke, a subject on which he has written and researched extensively over the last 25 years. He has contributed to the development of neurological rehabilitation in the UK through publication, lecturing and teaching, and has undertaken invited lectures nationally and internationally, relating to aspects of rehabilitation after head injury and stroke. He has worked for comittees at both national and international level, and is chief editor of a comprehensive textbook, "Handbook of Neurological Rehabilitation", initially published in 1993, and as a second in the private sector, apart from The Wellington Hospital, Dr Greenwood has admitting rights at the National Hospital for Neurology, The London Clinic and King Edward VII Hospital for officers.

    He was previously at the private Devonshire Hospital Rehabilitation Unit in Devonshire Street from its inception in 1987 until it closed in 2000, and initiated its transfer to the Wellington Hospital in 1999, where he has been closely involved with the growth of the multi-disciplinary Acute Neurological Rehabilitation Unit from it's original 8 beds to the current 46.
