"I qualified as a doctor at the University of Wales College of Medicine in 1979 and then spent two years in Antarctica as a Medical Officer with the British Antarctic Survey. On my return to the UK in 1982, I undertook medical research in Aberdeen and Cambridge and completed my doctoral thesis, which was on immunology, while also practising in medicine in Madagascar, Kenya, the Falkland Island and the USA".

"I was fascinated by ophthalmology and completed my higher surgical training in Ophthalmology at Leicester Medical School, Newcastle Medical School, Moorfields Eye Hospital, King’s College Hospital and Guy’s and St Thomas’. I became a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon in the NHS but recently retired from the NHS so I could concentrate solely on my research and independent medicine".
"I undertake contract NHS work in general Ophthamology and Glaucoma Clinics."
