    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    Consultant Psychiatrist (Private practice) in Adult Psychiatry.

    Visiting Consultant to two groups of private residential homes for adults with challenging behaviour and/or coexisting psychiatric illness.

    General Medical Council Specialist Register – with current licence to practice.

    Formally Medical Director, Cygnet Hospital Beckon, London E6: Director of Mental Health Services, North Kent Healthcare NHS Trust: Second opinion approved Doctor for the Mental Health Act Commission; Recognised Teacher in Psychiatry, University of London.

    Over the past 20 years I have written many medico legal reports, and have carried out many capacity assessments, including litigation capacity, capacity to make a will, capacity to deal with financial affairs, and fitness to plead. I have prepared reports relating to the Court of Protection and Lasting Power of Attorney.

    Personal profile:

    Nowadays I am mostly occupied in my professional work, and with staying up-to-date, but I have an amateur interest in archaeology and I also try to keep up some reading about genetics, which was my main interest in my research days.

    Sport: Sadly I was unable to emulate my father’s football career (Aston Villa and Ireland): Club Rugby Union at a humble level: cricket at a good club standard (Ulster senior League) for Queens University 1st XI and later – as club captain – Belfast YMCACC 1st XI. Now regretfully retired, but I am a regular attender at Test matches.

    Although I am no longer politically active, as a student in Belfast and amid the worst of the civil unrest in Northern Ireland, I co-founded and edited “Dawn”, a magazine covering non-violent and non-sectarian community politics. It achieved a circulation of several thousands and continued to appear for fifteen years. I was deeply involved in the Peace People movement, co-editing and writing for its magazine “Peace by Pease” which achieved circulation of 50,000 copies. In more recent years, my writing has been linked to my profession.
