I have looked after some of the most dangerous criminals in the UK – from rapists to murderers and terrorists – but also lovely people who have simply lost their way. In 2004, at the age of 49, I left the doctor’s practice that I had run for nearly 20 years, after a new GP contract was introduced by the government which I fundamentally disagreed with, as in my opinion it put a price tag on medicine. At first, I felt utterly lost, having walked away from all I had ever known, but by a wonderful twist of fate, I was offered a job as a doctor in a prison for young offenders – and my life has never been the same.
