• I qualified as a doctor in 1969 and spent my working life in the NHS, working in medical research, general practice and public health.
• I was Medical Director of the West Midlands (a population of 5 million) for 12 years. After 9/11, I was also in charge of the whole spectrum of emergency planning for the Government Office for the West Midlands and worked on some national projects.
• I spent the last three years of my career as President of the national profession body for public health, part of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges.
• I was awarded a CBE for services to medicine in 2000.
Before I retired I became convinced that fiction could provide an excellent vehicle for engaging the public with medical issues.

a strange little book that feels more like notes for an essay than a book.
