I graduated from Edinburgh University in 1983. I trained in psychiatry and obtained my MRCPsych and MSc in Manchester.
I then worked for five years as a MRC scientist doing research on Alzheimer’s disease and obtained my PhD.
I started working as a consultant in Old Age Psychiatry in 1999.
I am presently an impatient old age consultant at Monkwearmouth Hospital in Sunderland.
