I am a medical doctor. I graduated in 1969 and have worked full time in general medical practice in the UK for over 40 years. Thirty of those years were spent as a partner in a busy London teaching practice where besides caring for patients on a daily basis I was much involved with postgraduate teaching and the development of specialist training in general practice.

I now work part time in the county of Wiltshire and find myself able to give more time to my interests and to my family. I have been married to since May 1969. We have three grown children and five grandchildren. A more detailed account can be found in my biography on my home page
