Job Description

PURPOSE

The main role will be to act as team physician for the England Men’s Cricket team.

The purpose will be to ensure appropriate standards of all matters relating to the management of injury and illness of the England Cricket team. The key objective is to optimise the availability and performance of the EPS by working to minimise the impact of injury and illness.  This is measured by weekly monitoring of EPS availability for selection and England Team forced changes relative to international opposition.

The multi-disciplinary team (MDT), that travels with the England Men’s Team, the two other Medical Panel members and the Chief Medical Officer and National Lead for Physiotherapy, both based at the National Cricket Performance Centre, will support the role and be key colleagues.

The job will involve travelling either in the UK and abroad directly supporting the England Team, when the post holder will be present at every day of a series or tour.  This aspect of the role will be shared with two other members of the medical panel. 

The individual is expected to have other roles in Sports Medicine that will support their on-going competencies as a skilful practitioner in Sport and Exercise Medicine.
