Dr Jon Sharpe

I graduated from Leeds Medical School in 2004 with degrees in Medicine and Human Anatomy. I undertook junior medical training at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust before joining the Yorkshire-wide Basic Surgical Training Rotation. During this time I developed a strong interest in orthopaedic surgery and elected to carry out my higher training in radiology with a special interest in musculoskeletal work.

In 2007 I secured a place on the highly competitive and nationally renowned Leeds Radiology Training Scheme. Following Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists, I dedicated my final two years of training to specialising in musculoskeletal radiology.

In August 2012 I was appointed as a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist at Harrogate District Hospital, where I serve as Clinical Lead for Musculoskeletal Imaging.

I carry out all forms of diagnostic musculoskeletal imaging with particular emphasis on ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

I am an enthusiastic road cyclist and spend my time enjoying the fabulous cycling opportunities of the Yorkshire Dales. During summer I enjoy modest success as a club-level time trialist, something which has led to me developing an interest in exercise physiology.
