I was appointed as the medical advisor to the Premier League in November 2018 after a decade of experience as a team physician and performance director in that league.

I qualified in 1992 and completed higher specialist training in Emergency Medicine in the West Midlands in 2003. I have an MSc in Sports Medicine from the University of Nottingham and a founding fellow of the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine UK.

From 2003-2008 I worked for the English Institute of Sport as a sports physician and in 2008 I became the first team doctor at Chelsea FC, before moving to West Bromwich Albion FC as Director of Performance in 2010 and then to Nottingham Forest in 2018.

I have more than 20 years’ experience working in elite sports medicine with Olympic athletes. In 2012 I was a member of Team GB at the London Olympics as Chief Medical Officer to the men’s and women’s basketball squads. I was instrumental in the development of the AREA pre-hospital care training course for the Football Association in 2008.

I was previously the chairman of the Premier League Doctors Group and the training program Director for Sports and Exercise Medicine in the West Midlands from 2009 – 2016 and Deputy Chair of the national training committee from 2014-2016.
