He stayed there for his entire GP career, subspecialising in family planning and becoming senior partner in 2006. An avid rugby fan, he also spent time providing medical cover for the Cornish rugby team. Later in his career he became an honorary lecturer for the recently formed Peninsula Medical School. A passionate sailor, he was a member of both the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and Flushing Sailing Club, regularly competing in national championships. He leaves two sons, Mark (who followed him into medicine) and Sam.
