Dr Nick Knight

Doctor ¦ Scientist ¦ Writer ¦ Health Optimist


Please let me introduce myself – my name is Nick knight. I am a life-loving, energetic doctor based in a London Hospital. The past 14 years have seen me explore how the body and mind functions under stress, through a degree in Exercise and Sports Sciences, an Oxford PhD in Human Performance, and now as a medical doctor. These passions have seen me train a 4 man crew to row 3,100 miles across the Indian Ocean and perform research at Mount Everest Base-camp.

I have also dipped my toe into media as well; this has included writing for the Independent Online, Equinox and BBC Newsbeat, being a talking head for the TV series “What Have I Got” on TLC for Discovery, speaking live on BBC News 24 regarding the A&E crisis, and being an online video expert for the Island with Bear Grylls.

This blog aims to chart the highs and lows of life as a doctor….

  1. Very interesting bio. But why oh why has this been written in the third person? ‘You’ write the articles for ‘your’ blog, don’t you?! The only reason I can think of for adopting the third person narrative is not wishing to come across as too full of yourself, perhaps. I don’t know. Don’t hide your light behind a bushel!

  2. Great Blog! Found it via the Indo article on the liver (my 2nd favourite organ .. to misquote Woody Allen) – i’m living in Ireland having tried London from age 17 – married with 1 teenage rugby mad son 🙂

  3. I love watching u on ‘what have i got’. I’d like to know more about u not just about what u wrote on the blog but more to ur personal life. Ur birthplace & date, family, relationships, or any other non-medical history.. oh well, maybe i’m asking too much! 🙂
