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 oft untapped potential of patients.
At the King’s Fund he founded the Ask About Medicines campaign and published ‘Producing Patient Information’. In the BBC he delivered a range of behaviour change initiatives to motivate people to improve their health and lifestyle.
Following roles in the publishing and telecoms sectors, Mark has worked with AstraZeneca, Central Office of Information, Department of Health, Microsoft, NHS Commissioning Board, Novartis, Scholl, Tunstall Group and UCB Pharma.
He contributes to various public and commercial Advisory & Editorial Boards including the National Stakeholder Forum, is a HealthBox Accelerator mentor, a judge for the Technology Strategy Board Innovators Den, and Chair of the Patient Information Forum.
He is a patient and carer, and lives happily in Manchester, England (despite being Scottish).
