Medical

I am a consultant in sport and exercise medicine. I also work as a consultant in the English Institute of Sport and team doctor for Harlequins Rugby Club in the Aviva Premiership. I am the medical director of the London Triathlon, the Blenheim Triathlon and London’s Run To The Beat Half-marathon, as well as assistant medical director of the London Marathon. I co-organise ‘Marathon Medicine’, the longest running conference on the medicine and science of endurance running internationally.

I graduated in medicine from Nottingham University. Following basic surgical training, I studied for an MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine at the Royal London. Subsequently I trained as a sport and exercise medicine physician on the London Deanery’s specialist training programme during which I was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study sport and exercise medicine overseas. This fellowship took me to Harvard and Stanford Universities in the USA as well as Olympic Park Sports Medicine Centre in Melbourne in 2010/11.
