In his spare time, he has been a Consultant Nephrologist since 1975, at Sefton General, the Royal Infirmary, the Liverpool Royal, Arrowe Park, the Countess of Chester, and has visited many other hospitals in the Region, with growing confusion as architectural styles are replicated.

Since formal retirement he has continued to enjoy clinical work in Locum positions on Wirral, in Chester, and more recently further afield.
