  • Our rapid loss of GPs in the NHS.
  • Why physician burnout is almost inevitable unless things change.
  • His love for geek culture and adopting the name Dr. Gandalf.
  • How technology will to change how medical care is delivered – digital healthcare, medtech, AI, and NHSX.
  • His personal initiative to introduce board games as a social activity for self-care and mental health for both doctors and patients.
