I am a part-time GP partner and trainer in Redditch, Worcestershire, with particular interests in obesity, malnutrition and women's health.
I was RCGP Clinical Champion for Nutrition until 2015 and began a NICE Fellowship in April 2015. I established the RCGP Nutrition Group in 2013.
I have written two books - "Weight Matters for Children" and "Weight Matters for Young People", Radcliffe Publishing 2006, plus many e-learning modules on obesity, child obesity and adolescent health.
In 2014 I established the self-directed RCGP Introductory Certificate in Obesity Malnutrition and Health, accessed via RCGP Nutrition Web pages. http://www.rcgp.org.uk/clinical-and-research/clinical-resources/nutrition.aspx
I run primary care obesity training courses throughout the UK (https://primarycareobesitytraining.wordpress.com/ ) and have collaborated with WHO on a European primary care obesity training package.
I contributed to the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges Obesity Steering Group 2013 report:- Measuring up: The medical profession’s prescription to the obesity crisis.
I contributed to the 2013 RCP Action on Obesity:Comprehensive care for all report, which looks at how the NHS should adapt to meet the needs of an increasingly obese nation. I am a member of the Lancet Standing Commission on Liver Disease in UK.
