He was a rural GP in Biggar for almost 20 years, providing A&E services to the old Law Hospital, doing an MBA in Healthcare Management at Stirling, and becoming a non-executive director of Lanarkshire Health Board while he was there.
He moved to become Medical Director of the Primary Care Trust in Dumfries & Galloway in 2001, and subsequently spent a year as interim Chief Executive, before becoming Board Medical Director. In 2015 he was seconded to Scottish Government to write the National Clinical Strategy, and contributed to writing Realistic Medicine. He retired from the medical director role in 2017 and now works part-time as medical advisor to regional planning in the West of Scotland, and part-time as a hill sheep farmer in the Borders.
