General Practitioner & Assistant Medical Director

Personal tragedy intersects with patient safety - what happens to the horse when the cart is put before it

Robin is a GP, born and trained in Toronto. He has been working in the NHS since 2007, largely in clinical governance. He is currently working as an Assistant Medical Director for the South East Coast Ambulance NHS Trust, a Clinical Advisor with NHS England, South-East team and as GP Lead for Primary Care Streaming in the A&E of East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (Hastings and Eastbourne Hospitals). He has always been interested in medical error. Now his professional and personal lives have converged, in trying to make sense of the death of his son Julien, a third year Registrar in Anaesthesia.
