I have worked in the various incarnations of the NTW Trust and Newcastle University since 1993. I am currently a Consultant in the Hadrian Clinic working onto Gainsborough Ward. I am also Clinical Director for Medical Education (Undergraduate).
In Newcastle University, I am Sub Dean for Assessment for the MBBS programme and hold a Chair in Medical Education in the School of Medical Education.
I act as an advisor on fitness related to diving for the Health and Safety Executive and am involved in medical assessment both nationally and internationally.
Research and publications cover the neurobiology of cognition, the neuropsychiatric consequences of diving, psychiatric education and the pedagogy of assessment.
