Dr Jonathan Carter





Consultant in Emergency Medicine, NHS Lothian.

I am part of a vibrant team of emergency medicine consultants. I originate from Lancashire and did my medical degree in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

I had a taste of emergency medicine in my foundation years, then did a medical rotation and worked as a respiratory registrar in Stockton-on-Tees before the MMC tide swept me to Glasgow where I worked as a haematology registrar. However my passion for seeing undifferentiated patients, making a diagnosis and fixing people drew me back to EM and I have worked in NHS Lothian since 2008. 

I love acute medicine and innovative ways of teaching, and I'm a big fan of FOAM (Free Online Access to Meducation).

When I'm not working I enjoy testing the integrity of my tibias in the local Sunday football league, singing and songwriting, and having my nose chewed by my seven-month-old daughter.
