Mark is keen to see sports injuries and problems (especially if related to his interests in cycling, skiing or windsurfing). He has completed 2 Etape du Tours in France which is the Tour De France stage open to amateurs every year. A seven plus hour slog up several kilometres of vertical ascent which the pros do the week after (in half the time). He is can also be found struggling to control his new toy, a hydrofoiling windsurfer, off South Beach. He is married to Tanya, who is also a GP in Perth, with 2 grown up children, a son at Edinburgh University and a daughter pilot training with the RAF.
