Spire Liverpool consultant chosen by English Rugby Union Team

One of Spire Liverpool Hospitals sports medicine consultants has been chosen to work as the official doctor for the England Rugby Union team.

Nigel Jones will be working with the English senior team as official sports medicine consultant and doctor as they take part in this year’s Autumn Internationals and next year’s Six Nations and World Cup.

Nigel said: "It's an immense honour to get to work with the Senior England Rugby team. I have acted as official doctor for the under 19s and under 21s before but this is a different level of workload and intensity. I intend to enjoy every moment!”

Nigel's role will involve handling all medical issues for the team but in particular issues related to sports injury, diagnosing problems, and developing rehabilitation plans and treatments. He has extensive experience in this area from his work at Spire Hospital Liverpool and also from previous posts with Liverpool Football Club and British Gymnastics.

Dr Jones will balance his commitments with England Rugby with his patient work at Spire Hospital Liverpool.

Alison Peake, Hospital Director at Spire Liverpool Hospital, said: "It's great news for Nigel and really shows Spire's leadership in sports medicine with our consultants being appointed to some of the top medical roles in UK sport."
