Consultant In Sports & Exercise Medicine




Sports Medicine



James Noake

Dr Noake graduated from Birmingham University in 2002. After a year as an anatomy lecturer, he completed my surgical training in trauma and orthopaedics in the Midlands. He then completed his Masters in sport and exercise medicine at Queen Mary University of London, Barts and The London Hospital in 2006. After two years of general medicine (including rheumatology) training in the Oxford Deanery, he completed further speciality training in sport and exercise medicine (SEM) in the London Deanery, gaining Fellowship of the SEM faculty in 2009.


He has worked at numerous centres of excellence around the country gaining invaluable experience, including Headley Court DMRC military centre. Previously, I have also been clinical lead in orthopaedics and SEM for the NHS Hertfordshire Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group and headed a musculoskeletal interface service in primary care. He had a key role n the development of a multidisciplinary SEM service at Imperial College NHS Trust in London.


Dr Noake has been involved in elite sport for over 10 years, working with the Women’s Rugby Football Union (RFC) and three years with Esher RFC, before joining premiership club London Irish RFC where he was head doctor from 2012-2020, now acting as a consultant to the club. 


His sports experience extends to working with UK Athletics as a medical officer, the GB Paralympic squad, The English Institute of Sport, GB and England disability football squads, Essex County Cricket Club, GB Basketball and England Hockey. 


Dr Noake has worked as event doctor for the Aviva indoor world athletics grand prix series, and World and European artistic gymnastics championships. At ‘multi-sport’ games events he has been Medical Officer at the Sainsbury’s UK Schools Games in 2011 and at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, consulting in the state-of the-art polyclinic in the athletes village.


His postgraduate qualifications in medical ultrasound are utilised in his day-to-day clinical practice, specifically in the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal injuries. He also teaches musculoskeletal ultrasound and injections to doctors and therapists through practical workshops and lectures.


He sees a wide range of patients with acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions which are not necessarily related to sport or physical activity; they may be occupation related or occur in the less active individual. 

He currently holds private out-patient clinics at Pure Sports Medicine (Bank) & Spire Hartswood (Brentwood, Essex)
