Allan is enthusiastic about his practice which is now focused on the upper limb. He was born and educated in Scotland and moved south after graduation. In recent years he has lived much of the time in Edinburgh although he continues to practice in the Northeast of England, based in Sunderland and Newcastle.
Allan's experiences in management as a NHS clinical director and as executive director of a private healthcare company have given him considerable insight into the delicate balance between patient expectations, the cost of healthcare and the responsibilities of the medical profession.
He enjoys sport which stimulates his interest in the management of sports injuries.
