Mark is a rare blend of clinician, management consultant and patient advocate. He works with organisations to help them realise the full benefit of their services and products, especially through the often untapped potential of patients and the public.
At The King’s Fund Mark promoted shared decision making, founded the Ask About Medicines campaign and authored ‘Producing Patient Information’. In the BBC he developed a range of behavioural change interventions to improve people’s health and lifestyle.
Following roles in publishing and telecoms, Mark moved into consulting with clients including Cancer Research UK, Care Quality Commission, Pfizer and Microsoft.
In addition to various advisory and mentor roles, he is a Non-Executive Director of the Patient Information Forum.
Mark is a long term condition patient (and advocate) who lives happily in Salford, England (despite being Scottish).
