He took up a role as lead COPD consultant, and senior lecturer at University Hospital Southampton in 2007, and took most of his practice from the trust, into the community within the first 3 months. Realising innovation was key to reaching COPD patients, and others with long term conditions in the community, he set up new community pathways within Southampton City and formed my mHealth; the leading UK supplier of long-term condition digital products.
