Professional profile

Retired from clinical practice. Medical reporting only.

I graduated with Honours in Medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1975. Thereafter, I trained in Glasgow and Manchester before being appointed as Reader in Surgery and Honorary Consultant surgeon at the University of Oxford in 1983. In 1989 I moved to Edinburgh as Consultant Vascular Surgeon at the Royal Infirmary where I was Head of the Vascular Surgery Service from 1995 to 2011. Since 2011 I have significantly reduced my NHS commitment in the light of increasing non-NHS activities, including acting as external Professor of Surgery to the National University of Malaysia.

From 1989 to 2010 I had an editorial role in the British Journal of Surgery, a distinguished surgical journal (second in the world by circulation and impact factor). From 2002 to 2010 I was BJS Editor-in-Chief. I have been an executive and/or council member of the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain & Ireland, the Vascular Society, The European Vascular Society and the Royal College of Surgeons & Physicians of Glasgow. Since 2003 I have been an examiner for the Intercollegiate FRCS examination in the UK.

Clinical Interests

Vascular surgery

I provide medical reports relating to vascular disease and its management (including Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome, Raynaud's disease and deep vein thrombosis) for medical defence organisations, and solicitors and insurers handling claims for personal injury and/or medical negligence. I do not accept clinical referrals.
