He has worked clinically in hospitals in medical, surgical, emergency, orthopaedic, paediatric, psychiatric, and intensive care settings as well as his current work in General Practice. He works in General Practice because he enjoys the challenge of dealing with patients of all ages with all manner of problems, and being the first point of contact in the health system. He believes in empowering patients to manage their own health care, recognising that many of our unwanted health problems stem from unrecognised and poorly addressed mental health concerns. He also enjoys procedural work including managing skin cancer with minor surgery.
