Specialist in Sports Medicine MBChB, BSc (Hons), PhD, JCPTGP, MSc SEM, PGC in Ageing, Health and Disease

I have 15 years of experience in treating patients with acute and chronic sports injuries, and work related musculoskeletal injuries.  I have been the Bath City Football Club Doctor since 2002.

After qualifying from the University of Bristol in 1996, I began my career as a GP.  I developed an interest in musculoskeletal disorders and sports injuries, and subsequently trained in Sports and Exercise Medicine from the University of Bath.

I have a wide range of input for elite athletes and professional performers including screening, health promotion and performance enhancement, illness and injury prevention, diagnosis and management of injuries, through to return to full fitness.

My particular interests are: running, football, the genetics of athletic performance, and health promotion to limits the effects of ageing.


I also make regular use of diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound guided injections, and I am proactive in referral for more specialised treatment and imaging.
