< back to About

I have extensive and wide ranging clinical experience, including primary care, geriatric medicine, palliative care, community services and urgent care. Working in both commissioning and provider divisions of the NHS, I have held management and leadership posts, including a Partnership in General Practice, an Associate Medical Director for Community Services, frailty transformation lead for a Prime Ministers GP Access Fund project, a General Practitioner with Special Interest in Geriatric Medicine in Derbyshire, and as Associate National Clinical Director for Older People and Integrated Person-Centred care with NHS England. I also have academic experience gained through the award of an NIHR In-practice Fellowship to study frailty in primary care and at transitions of care.

I have current two roles with the NHS in Orkney as the GP Clinical Director and an Out of Hours GP.   

My day-to-day involvement in the delivery of key clinical services results in a very real appreciation of the challenges faced by frontline staff and my research and analytical skills enable me to consider how these can be overcome. Fusion48 provides the opportunity to apply these skills across a range of interesting and exciting projects.

A key focus of my work has involved holding strategic and clinical leadership roles in the design and delivery of new services. I take a strongly analytical approach to my work, resulting in numerous publications and presentations at national level.

I hold a First Class Degree in Medicine from Cambridge University and a Master's Degree with Distinction in Geriatric Medicine from Keele University. 

Away from my ‘day job’ I am fascinated by wildlife and wilderness landscapes and work as an expedition doctor on small polar ships in both Antarctica and the High Arctic.
