Dr Leon Creaney
Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine
BMedSci, MBChB, MRCP, FFSEM
I currently work for the NHS in Manchester and Birmingham and I am the lead physician advisor for the Spire Perform network.
My NHS training included rotations in orthopaedics, rheumatology, medicine, intensive care, A&E, paediatrics and general practice. I completed a dedicated rotation in London for a further three years on the first NHS Sport and Exercise Medicine scheme. I worked at the Royal London Hospital, Olympic Medical Institute, DMRC Headley Court (Army) and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore. Following this period of additional training I spent six months working as a Consultant in Sports Exercise Medicine in Sheffield.
In the NHS I worked in musculoskeletal medicine and I continue to work in Elite Sports Medicine with UK Athletics, English Institute of Sport and several football and rugby teams.
I worked in London as a consultant since August 2009, before joining Spire Manchester in 2011 and most recently joining Spire Liverpool in 2015.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Leon Creaney at Spire include:
Consultant, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust
Consultant, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust
I am an enthusiastic veteran 200m and 400m athlete, and a previous World Medical Games Champion in 2005.
