About me

Dr Rae is a Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine. With experience of working within professional sport he was appointed by Roy Keane, as the first full time Sports Medicine Doctor and Head of the Medical Department at Sunderland AFC in 2008, resigning at the end of the 2012/ 2013 season to pursue his long term aim of setting up a sports medicine and musculoskeletal clinic in his native North East of England and was doctor for the U20 FIFA World Cup winning squad.

He has since returned to SAFC as Director of Medicine and Performance and also works as Medical Officer for Durham County Cricket Club and with professional jockeys.

Whilst continuing to work with professional athletes, including on tour with the Senior England Cricket One Day squad, he also works as a Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine with non sporting individuals offering non surgical treatments for musculoskeletal conditions.
