Alan Mordue - Board Member
After graduating at Medical School in Bristol I worked for a few years in clinical practice and then entered specialist training in Public Health Medicine, becoming a Member and later a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health. After two consultant posts in my home town of Newcastle I joined Borders Health Board in 1993 and liked it so much I stayed until my retirement in 2016.
For many years I worked with local housing and social work colleagues to develop community care services for older people and those with mental health problems. I undertook research into the assessment of medical priority for re-housing, have published on a variety of other topics, contributed to national committees in England and Scotland, as well as teaching and supervising MPH students at Edinburgh University, holding a Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer position there.
I live in the central Borders, an idyllic area for cycling, one of my hobbies alongside bicycle maintenance.
