Professional profile

I am a consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine at The Centre for Sports Medicine, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. I have a busy NHS practice and a past Fellow at The NHS Institute for Innovation & Improvement.

I graduated from Cambridge University Medical School in 1984 and trained in Family Medicine. I obtained a Diploma in Sports Medicine from the University of London in 1991 and completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine at the University of California, Davis (UCD) in 1993. The next two years were spent as a faculty member in Family Medicine at UCD and as a team physician at the University of California, Berkeley.

Since 1995, I have been in Nottingham as a Consultant/Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Medicine at the Nottingham University Hospitals: appointed Special Professor in 2004. I served for 2½ years as clinical director for Trauma and Orthopaedics.

I serve or served as a consultant for The England and Wales Cricket Board, The Rugby Football League, British Gymnastics, The English Institute of Sport, The Wimbledon Tennis Championships, ATP and the WTA.

I am immediate Past-President of the Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine and past Chairman of the Specialist Advisory Committee in SEM. I chaired the work-group which produced the successful case for SEM as a specialty of medicine (2005).

My research interests include: Overuse injuries, particularly groin, low back, lower leg pain (shin splints and stress fractures), tendon disease, OA and Workplace Wellness. I am Director of the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis: a consortium of Nottingham, Oxford, Southampton, Bath, Loughborough, UCL and Leeds Universities investigating the relationship between acute and overuse injury and subsequent Osteoarthritis.
