Perspectives on Health and Wellbeing with Dr Tim Stevenson

Tim qualified in medicine in 1984 from University College Dublin and has had an interesting and fulfilling portfolio career.

After training to become a General Practitioner he became a GP principal in Shoreham-by-Sea in June 1989.

(As Tim has always had a passion for sailing and the sea, proximity to the coast was a prerequisite when choosing where he would live and practice!)

He quickly developed an interest in sports medicine and became team Doctor at Brighton and Hove Albion football Club. A position he held for 17 years.

During that time he also worked for the England under 18 squad as well as setting up the medical provision for the inaugural Brighton Marathon.

On leaving General Practice, Occupational Health and especially aviation medicine,  became the “day job”. He has been proud to work as Company Medical Adviser to Virgin Atlantic Airways, easyJet, The Body Shop, Reed Business Information, and Philips, as well as providing ad hoc medical advice for many other companies.

Tim says that his vision of health has always been a holistic one with Mental well being being an integral and facilitative component in the search for a total state of well being “not merely the absence of disease” (WHO definition from 1946!).

Tim has now retired from clincal medicine but continues to produce his podcasts from time to time. Tim also lectures on various aspects of health and well-being in an individual, corporate and team setting.
