Tim trained in pathology at various hospitals around London, including the Royal Marsden Hospital. Appointed Consultant Pathologist at Guy's in 1989, he moved to Inverness in late 1990.
His responsibilities there were for lab aspects of cervical screening and lab computerisation. He was involved in developing the Scottish Cervical Screening Programme, including the introduction of liquid based cytology, image assisted screening and a national screening computer system.
Although retired from full time practice, he is Clinical Lead for Cervical Screening in Scotland. He was closely involved in the development of the business case for primary HPV screening in Scotland and is the Lead Clinician for HPV Primary Screening implementation.
He was appointed Honorary Senior Lecturer at Edinburgh University in 2014 to allow continuation of his research interests. Outside pathology, he has diverse interests, including singing early music as a male alto, food and wine, ceramics, renovating an old house, and maintaining a classic sports car.
He is currently involved in a research project at Raigmore involving the use of basket-making in rehabilitation from stroke and traumatic/toxic head injury.
