Dr Hogg is a Consultant in Sport, Exercise & Musculoskeletal Medicine at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals & the English Institute of Sport, with a private practice at Claremont Hospital in Sheffield.
He qualified from Newcastle University in 2006 before undertaking further training in a range of acute medical specialties around Manchester. Following a post-graduate degree in Sport & Exercise Medicine at Trinity College Dublin, he completed higher specialist training in Sheffield between 2012 – 2017. He then worked in elite sport & private practice before being appointed as an NHS Consultant in Sport & Exercise Medicine at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals in 2020. Throughout this period he gained invaluable experience in the management of musculoskeletal disorders and physical activity related injuries.
His role as a Consultant in Sport & Exercise Medicine at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of a relatively small number of jobs of its type in the country & the only one in South Yorkshire. Despite the job title, this is not just about looking after keen sportspeople, but any patient with an issue affecting their ability to be as active as they would like. He routinely manages a wide range of patients with complex musculoskeletal problems referred by GPs, physiotherapists and other Consultants from various specialties.
Outside of the NHS his other key role is as Lead Sports Physician at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, treating injuries and illnesses in elite athletes from a wide range of Olympic and Paralympic sports. This includes being the team doctor to the GB Boxing squad, with whom he travelled to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, and Chief Medical Officer to GB Para badminton & British Para Table Tennis. He is also the Head of Medical for Scotland Rugby League and match-day doctor for Leeds Rhinos & Premiership rugby.
He was previously the Chief Medical Officer for British Wheelchair Basketball, British Universities Sport & the UK School Games, as well as club doctor for Leeds Rhinos & Sheffield Eagles RLFCs. A number of these roles have included attending major sporting events and over the last decade he has been part of the medical team at 3 Olympic Games, 2 Paralympic Games, 2 Commonwealth Games, 5 World University Games, 6 World & 6 European Championships.
He believes the principles of treatment and rehabilitation he applies to international and professional athletes are just as pertinent to all members of the public and aims to employ this holistic approach to care with all of his patients.
As well as his clinical positions, he also has a number of educational and governance roles. He sits on the Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine UK Council, helping to shape the continued development of this exciting young specialty. He has been a member of the England Boxing Medical Commission since 2018, guiding nationwide medical policy & regulation for the sport at all levels. He contributed to the development of the International Boxing Association’s current concussion guidelines. He regularly teaches on the Rugby Football Union’s Pre-hospital Immediate Care in Sport course, training other doctors & physios how to manage acute injuries on the pitch. He is an accredited UK Anti-doping educator, helping to teach athletes and support staff about the range of anti-doping implications in elite sport. His NHS role sees him acting as Educational Supervisor to Sport & Exercise Medicine specialty trainees in the region & he is an examiner for the University of Sheffield Medical School practical exams.
Aside from work, in his spare time he is a keen sportsman himself. He regularly plays badminton & squash for teams in the Sheffield & District leagues, enjoys skiing & cycling, and finally discovered golf during the COVID lockdown. He is also a qualified SCUBA diving instructor but admits to preferring this in warmer climates than the UK!
