A graduate of Nottingham University with clinical and academic positions in Oxford and Harvard, a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in London and a former nephrologist with a clinical and academic career spanning 18 years.

Dr Bacon revolutionised the UK medical community in 1998 when he founded Doctors.net.uk, one of the world’s largest doctors’ networks, providing communications, innovative collaboration and training to a member base comprising more than 150,000 doctors in the UK.

His most recent venture is iWantGreatCare.org - the most open and direct way for the UK public to see what their peers think about the health care they receive, and a unique tool for health care providers to increase the quality of service they provide.  iWantGreatCare is also currently one of the largest providers of the Friends and Family Test across the NHS.
