Christopher Davidson

Dr Christopher Davidson was born in Ilkley, Yorkshire in 1944.

Christopher talks about his family and reasons for going into medicine, which was influenced by coming from a family of doctors, including both parents. His family never pushed him into the profession, but he saw how fulfilling their careers were.

As children he and his two sisters would spend a great deal of time in the hospital; and while his sisters ran a mile from the profession, it has suited him very well.

He talks about his training at Cambridge, the developments in medicine across his career, working across the country in different settings including at Royal Sussex County Hospital.
