Robin is a founder member and now ambassador of the UK health alliance on climate change. Robin is a retired consultant physician, site dean and medical director of Lewisham university hospital. He has a lifetime interest in developing more socially and economically equal societies, which when co-created by people and legislators, and developed within environmental limits, are optimal precursors for good health. In this context he has been chair of MEDACT, chair of the international committee of physicians for prevention on nuclear war, chair of Greenwich CND, active in movements to liberate the erstwhile colonies, and an enthusiastic supporter of XR. In addition to enjoying his roles as husband of 53 years, father of two and grandfather of 5, Robin relishes exercise, which he sees as a magic bullet in the prevention of non communicable disease. He runs, plays the clarinet so badly that it frightens the cat, sings in a local choir, cycles, practises tai chi regularly, and is a keen amateur astronomer.
