    I trained in Medicine and Geriatric Medicine in Newcastle upon Tyne.  Subsequently I have worked as a Consultant Physician in Leicester, Professor of Health Care for Older People in Sheffield and Consultant Physician in Barnsley, where I was Clinical Director for Medicine for Older People and Stroke.

    I am the senior clinical examiner for the Diploma of Geriatric Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians of London and Vice Chair of the NIHR Ageing National Specialty Research Group.

    In 2013 I returned to my "roots" in the North East.  My time is divided between clinical work as a consultant physician with an interest in acute care for older people and academic work in applied health research.

    I am the William Leech Professor of Geriatric Medicine in the Institute for Ageing and Health at Newcastle University.
