David’s dry witty approach is complemented by his inside out understanding of the subject matter. This combination makes him a very good teacher in his field. Despite not being a clinician, I believe what makes David stand out, from the perspective of a recently qualified GP and Darzi leadership alumni, is his unrelenting awareness of the ‘clinical’ impact of his work to improve the quality of patient care in the NHS.
