Personal profile:
My main non-medical interests are sport, especially Rugby (The Worcester Warriors), gardening and ferrying my children around Worcester. I used to mountain-bike and played competitive squash in Lancaster and London but the wear and tear of the years has taken its toll! My cricketing exploits are legendary, mainly as I'm seen but once a year wearing whites or are they now greys!
