    I moved to the Freeman Hospital in 1995, after working for 3 years as a consultant otolaryngologist (ENT surgeon) in Glasgow Royal infirmary. I am currently the Hon Sec of ENTUK, the national specialty association for ENT specialists. I have a particular interest in developing reliable measures of clinical outcomes.  


    My Health Services Research projects include being chief investigator of  UK wide trials of 1. adult tonsillectomy and 2. the use of proton pump inhibitors in persistent throat symptoms. My basic science collaborations cover several aspects of innate immunity in the upper and lower airway, and  the impact of acid reflux on larynx (voice box) lining.
