After eighteen years in London, where he did a few Degrees, and worked as a Clinical Biochemist at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Great Ormond Street, he headed north to Nottingham to study Medicine, where he met his wife, (who is also a GP).
After qualifying as a doctor he undertook training in General Medicine, then, as his family grew he changed to General Practice.
