Dr Jonathan Wraight
MBChB MSc FACEM DipMedTox
Consultant in Emergency Medicine with Toxicology, NHS Lothian.
Jonathan graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1998 and promptly fled the country for New Zealand. After a period of respiratory research he joined the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine, and trained in Dunedin, Christchurch andPerth, WA. Ten years after leaving Scotland he returned with an EM Fellowship, a love of coffee and a Kiwi twang which can still occasionally be heard in moments of excitement.
He spent a year as a clinical toxicology fellow before accepting a substantive post in Emergency Medicine and Toxicology with NHS Lothian. His works in the Emergency Department at St John’s hospital, with the clinical toxicology service at the Royal Infirmary and edits TOXBASE entries for the National Poisons Information Service.
He is interested in good clinical care, the poisoned patient and the potential for using gadgets well in Emergency Medicine. A little incongruously for an Emergency Physican he also has a Masters degree in medical molecular genetics.
Outside the hospital his time is happily taken up by his family and his camera, and less happily by the damp patches on the back wall of the house.
