Training in Sheffield

Sheffield is one of 3 foundation partners forming the National Centre of Sport & Exercise Medicine. The National Centre's aim is to help deliver on the London 2012 pledge to secure a lasting health legacy from the Olympic and Paralympic Games through developing world class programs of physical activity clinical care, research and education. Sheffield has brought together key stakeholders across the City to achieve it’s National Centre aspirations. To help develop an iconic base for the National Centre, Sheffield has received significant capital investment but in line with Sheffield’s commitment to a population based approach facilities will be developed across the City using a hub & spoke model. The main hub will however aim to be a state of the art community facility from which to co-ordinate Sheffield’s sport & exercise medicine clinical, education and research programs. 

Training is currently based at the 2 large hospitals which comprise the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust (the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and Northern General Hospital) and upon completion will also include the National Centre. The NHS sport and exercise medicine service was established in 1999 by Simon Till. It aims to provide multidisciplinary medical support to exercisers of any age or ability and has close collaborative working relationships with colleagues in radiology, orthopaedics, primary care & public health and has access to all the facilities you’d expect in a large City with one of the biggest hospital Trusts in the Country, 2 Universities and one of the English Institute of Sport regional centres.
