Former dentist and medical practitioner, now retired to pursue a writing career. Having come into the medical profession as an older entrant, I was invited to provide advice on doctors who were being investigated by the NHS. This progressed to report writing for medical litigation, and an appointment as assistant editor of the Medico-Legal Journal. While pursuing a career in general practice I also held the post as chief medical officer for Norwich Union Insurance and wrote of their in-house publication "Medicine for Disability Insurers," I then formed a company, Medical Evidence Ltd. I no longer provide expert litigation evidence, but because of the growing number of complaints from dissatisfied patients I have recently self- published a book specifically aimed at educating patients – "When Doctors Get It Wrong". This is under my given names as "Dr Nicholas Rae". I hope to continue writing on medical topics well into my retirement and am delighted to be an associate member of the MJA
