About Christopher


I'm currently a practicing Family Physician and Hospital Director, with a background in Health Informatics.

An idea worth spreading

Healthcare systems need to focus on health promotion and self care and not just illness treatment. Current resource intensive hospitals must learn to work with and through primary care settings to shift resource to patient/citizen groups to use as personal wellness aids.

I'm passionate about

Targeting Healthcare to vulnerable and "hard to reach" groups. Changing healthcare to suit the population needs.

Talk to me about

Creative approaches to clinical strategy.

People don't know I'm good at

the first Urban Musher to go coast to coast across the UK with a Husky and Collie team.

Children's schools should have an "Imagination" period
I appreciate the sentiment, that creativity should be encouraged, but would suggest that the whole curriculum should move towards a creative approach, the work of "Creative Minds" social enterprise in the UK has been developing creative curricula in primary schools in the UK. Perhaps designating a time to creativity risks fostering an idea that it is not mainstream to b creative. Good teachers build on innate creativity, rules delete it. Sausage and trifle is excellent food until you are told it's "wrong". Chris PS- try it...

How did you find you life's work and passion after age 40? Is it possible?
Woody, by the time you are 40 you wil have a history, a story worth reading. Take the time to read your own story. What were the best and worst bits? Does your story hang together? Is there a thread? Sometimes you need a ghost writer for the story, - find a coach, they can ghost read the story with you. Perhaps a coach isn't a possibility, so why not coach yourself- a lot of different ways to do it. Looking at the "business" of your life you might find "Business Model You" to be a good approach, but very specific in it's way. In any case, if you're enjoying the tale, why worry about how it ends?
