"Trade Secrets of Sports Injuries; Top Tips from a Pragmatic Doyen"

Sporting injuries are becoming increasingly common, yet we G.P.s have precious little training in this area. Enter Dr Patrick Milroy who has an awesome pedigree in their management and prevention with extensive contributions to the medical literature and an
array of prestigious appointments, including chair of the Sports
Medicine Committee for the Commonwealth Games (Manchester 2002!). His own sporting
achievements - including a 2 hour 26 minute marathon, and many medals -
attest to his physical commitment to the subject. Moreover he is still a
full time G.P. and therefore grounded in common sense and real world practicalities. Today he will share with us as many "pearls" as possible on sports injuries and
spill the beans with inside stories on our top sportsmen (GMC permitting!)
