I qualified from King’s College Hospital, London in 1983 and joined the British Army where I trained in General Practice and worked in primary care for five years. After completing a full time Diploma in Sports Medicine in 1991 I decided to retrain as a Consultant in Rheumatology & Rehabilitation in order to pursue my interest in Sport & Exercise Medicine (SEM). Following a further six years of specialist training, I moved to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court, where I worked for 7 years as a Consultant specialising in the rehabilitation of sports & training injuries among Armed Forces personnel. Since leaving the Army in 2005, I have continued to work in SEM in a number of different settings.
I have worked in elite sport for several years. As well as being the Chief Medical Officer for Team GB at the last 3 Olympic Games - Beijing in 2008, Vancouver in 2010 & London in 2012 - I have been a doctor with Team GB at 2 further Olympic Games (Sydney in 2000 & Athens in 2004) and with Team England at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002 and in Melbourne in 2006. I was the Medical Officer to the British Modern Pentathlon Association for 7 years, a member of the Chelsea FC medical team for 3 seasons and medical officer to the British Davis Cup tennis team. I am currently a member of the medical team for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships & ATP World Tour Finals and am a sports physician to the Royal Ballet School.
I now work with a multi-disciplinary team delivering specialist sport & exercise medicine services on-site for a major global investment banking firm in Fleet Street. I am also a Consultant in Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Medicine at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC), Headley Court in Surrey.
My clinical interests include the management and rehabilitation of exercise related injury and the effective use of multi-disciplinary teams. My clinical experience reflects my training in General Practice, Rheumatology, Rehabilitation and SEM and my work within the NHS, the military and elite sport.
