I have also held several academic positions at universities, and am also registered with a number of professional organisations. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a Full Member of the Leicester Medical Society. I have a wide range of interests from sports (where I actively participated in several), photography, music & the arts including computerised applications in clinical work.
