Dr Rachel Birch
After qualifying in Southampton in 1994 Rachel moved to Edinburgh, working for three years in hospital medicine as an SHO in anaesthetics. She then undertook a self-constructed GP training programme, rotating through many clinical specialties. She has had a successful career in general practice for 13 years, holding positions as a salaried GP in three different practices in central Scotland.
Starting in 2006, Rachel balanced her work as a GP with part-time medicolegal work. In 2015 she left general practice to expand her role in Medical Protection. As a medicolegal adviser based in Edinburgh, she provides advice and support to members in Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Rachel gives talks and hosts workshops at Medical Protection events, and smaller local training sessions. She is editor-in-chief for the UK edition of Practice Matters, and writes a regular article for the National Association of Sessional GPs (NASGP) publication. She has also contributed to Casebook in Scotland, Practice Matters in Ireland, Pulse and GP. She also helped develop Medical Protection’s GP Handbook, a valuable online resource developed specifically to support newly qualified GPs.
She has recently written specific articles on how the GDPR will affect general practice for both Practice Matters UK and Pulse.
Dr Ewen Ross
Dr Ewen Ross graduated in 2002 with MBChB from the University of Edinburgh. During his medical training he completed an intercalated BSc (Med. Sci.) degree in Anatomical Sciences, graduating in 1999 with 1st class honours, after which he worked as a junior doctor in anaesthetics, intensive care, accident and emergency, paediatrics and medicine.
Ewen went on to complete his training in General Practice, achieving the CCT in General Practice and passing the MRCGP examination with distinction in 2007 after which he began working as a GP locum before securing a partnership in Derbyshire.
Ewen joined Medical Protection as a full time Medicolegal Adviser (MLA) in July 2014, recently completing his coursework for an LLM in Medical Law and Ethics with Leicester De Montfort Law School.
Based in the Leeds office, Ewen’s role as an MLA involves assisting Medical Protection members with a broad range of case types arising from their professional practice, as well as advising members who call the medicolegal advice line. Ewen has also authored articles for Pulse and GP Magazine, delivering on external speaker requests on medicolegal topics and holds stakeholder roles with external organisations.
