Dr Michael Crooks
Consultant in Respiratory and General Medicine
MBChB (Hons), MD, FRCP
I started my medical career in Scotland before moving to Yorkshire in 2009 to complete my specialist training in respiratory and general (internal) medicine. I have been working as a Senior Clinical Lecturer and Consultant in Respiratory Medicine in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire since 2016. I lead the Hull and East Riding Integrated COPD Service and am a member of the asthma team at Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
I have a broad experience in respiratory medicine which includes assessment and management of conditions including asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease (ILD), pulmonary embolism, chronic cough, lung and pleural cancers.
I am the Clinical Lead for the Respiratory Network for the Humber Coast and Vale, covering York and North Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull and North and North East Lincolnshire. I also chair the Hull and East Riding Respiraotry Education Group.
In addition to my NHS clinical practice, I am actively involved in research as a Senior Clinical Lecturer at Hull York Medical School. I lead and am involved in a range of research studies relating to respiratory medicine with a focus on airways diseases including asthma and COPD as well as ILD and breathlessness. I have authored over 30 peer-reviewed publications and three book chapters and regularly present at local, national and international conferences.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Michael Crooks at Spire include:
Senior Clinical Lecturer in Respiratory Medicine (Hull York Medical School).
Honorary Consultant in Respiratory and General Internal Medicine (Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust).
I enjoy spending time in the Yorkshire countryside with my wife Natalie, a town and country planner, and our two children aged eight and 10 years old. I have a keen interest in music, playing the saxophone and flute, and playing sport. During my university years I played rugby union competitively and now enjoy watching international games, supporting my local team and coaching the local under 11s rugby team as an England Rugby Certified Coach.
