Biography

Following graduation from Southampton University (1977) and trainee posts in medicine and anaesthesia in Southampton, Gloucester and Bristol , I spent one year as a faculty member of Yale University, USA. Between 1986 and 2011, I worked as Consultant in Critical Care at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.

I have a long-standing interest in the early recognition of, and the response to, patient deterioration. In 1998, I was a lead author of a BMJ article that highlighted opportunities to improve the ward care of sick patients. In 2000, I led the development of the ALERT (Acute Life-threatening Events: Recognition & Treatment) course and was subsequently involved in educational initiatives by the UK Royal Colleges (CCrISP & IMPACT) to improve ward staffs' recognition and management of patient deterioration. I described the ‘Chain of Prevention’, which was adopted by the UK and European Resuscitation Councils to assist hospitals in structuring their care processes to prevent and detect patient deterioration and cardiac arrest...
