Currently he works as Managing Director of Our Health Partnership, a newly established GP partnership based in the Birmingham area, and also holds academic roles with Aston, Keele and Birmingham universities.

He is an enthusiastic online debater and sees GP View as an opportunity for thought-provoking conversation, and the sharing (and challenging) of ideas, views and experiences in the rapidly evolving area of NHS general practice.
