The son of a General Practitioner and an Optometrist, Mr Pollock hails from just outside Glasgow. He attended Kelvinside Academy before studying medicine at Glasgow.

Married to a local GP, Mr Pollock has raised his family on the Fylde coast, residing in “ sunny St Annes”.

Rugby remains a passion having represented his school and university at 1st XV level. One of his three sons continues the tradition. Mr Pollock sponsored Fylde Colts for three seasons with “Pollock4eyes” emblazoned on the back of their rugby tops.

These days skiing and cycling holidays help keep a few of the pounds off.
