About me

I am a Consultant in Sport & Exercise Medicine at the English Institute of Sport in Manchester and am the England Netball Chief Medical Officer. I have previously worked with elite athletes in Football as the 1st team Dr at Everton FC, Swimming, Athletics and Rugby League. My NHS practice is the Joint Health Integrated Musculoskeletal service at Southport & Ormskirk NHS Trust.
I specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries, musculoskeletal problems and exercise related medical conditions. I am passionate about providing an elite level of healthcare to all my patients, irrespective of their ability or level of sport, physical activity and work.
I firmly believe in the importance of providing an accurate diagnosis and individualised management plan and place great importance in working alongside other healthcare professionals as part of a multi-disciplinary team in order to achieve that. I work to optimise non-surgical management options for my patients and utilise treatments such as Ultrasound guided injections and Shockwave therapy if appropriate. I use Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in my daily practice to enhance my clinical assessment.
