Availability - Murrayfield: Wednesday 11am-1.30pm.
I was a Consultant Physician with an interest in Endocrinology, and especially thyroid disease, at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh from 1978 until I retired from the NHS in 2009. I have been President of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, President of the British Thyroid Association and between 1996 and 2009, Physician to Her Majesty the Queen in Scotland. I have published widely in the most prestigious medical journals and textbooks on the clinical management of patients with thyroid disease. My small book ‘Understanding Thyroid Disorders’, written for patients and published by the British Medical Association is in its 12th edition and has sold over 250 thousand copies.
I was appointed CBE for services to Medicine in 1995 and LVO in 2009.
I have considerable experience in all aspects of endocrinology, my major contributions to the literature lie in the field of thyroid disease (hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, goitre, thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer). I am particularly interested in identifying those patients with hypothyroidism who might benefit from treatment with both Levothyroxine and Liothyronine (Triiodothyronine), rather than with the usual treatment of Levothyroxine alone.
