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….
