I am a ‘Jersey bean’ although I was, by an accident of birth, actually born in Cleethorpes. I qualified in Southampton in 2003 and went on to do a medical rotation there eventually obtaining MRCP. At that point I saw the light and switched to general practice. I moved back to Jersey with Clare and new baby in 1988 and have been here ever since.
We are now Derby and Joan with both daughters in the UK. I’m currently chair of what we term the PCB (Primary Care Body) and seem to consequently spend much of my time learning about medical politics and how to avoid meetings, if possible. When I’m not doing the day job I like to get out in my boat during what seem like increasingly short summers and, in the winter, turn my attention to the mid-life crisis of karate. I have always seen IT as a means of improving health care and one day hope to see the dream of a true integrated record come true.
