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 to be. 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 another of his key roles involves working at the English Institute of Sport, treating injuries and illnesses in elite athletes from a wide range of Olympic and Paralympic sports, including being the team doctor to the GB Boxing squad. He is also the Head of Medical for Scotland Rugby League. He was previously the Chief Medical Officer for British Wheelchair Basketball & the UK School Games, club doctor for Leeds Rhinos & Sheffield Eagles RLFCs and still works as a match day doctor for Premiership rugby. A number of these roles have included attending major sports 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.
