Dr Ed James

 MBChB  BSc(Hons)  FCEM 




Consultant in Emergency Medicine, NHS Lothian.



Ed started hanging around the Emergency Department at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh as a medical student and they have kept employing him ever since.

He graduated from Edinburgh University Medical School in 2006 with an intercalated degree in Virology. After completing the Foundation programme he went directly into a run-through training programme for Emergency Medicine in South-East Scotland. During this time Ed took a 6 month OOPE in Intensive Care Medicine, has developed an interest in Quality Improvement/Audit and became a member of the Emergency Department Airway Group. In 2015 he started as an ED Consultant in the RIE.

Outside of work, Ed is married with a small child. Much to his wife’s consternation he has a growing library of books, first editions and proofs/ARCs. He owns more copies of Harry Potter than any grown man ought to.
