Stuart is a medical doctor but following the diagnosis of a brain tumour in 2008, he was forced to leave the profession. He retrained and worked as a teacher in further education for three years before embarking on a freelance career. He now writes, edits, and provides web design and technical support for a variety of organisations. His health and science writing has been featured widely in both the printed and online press and he has been a fundraiser and lobbyist for brain tumour charities.
His brain tumour – an astrocytoma – was treated surgically and he has had clear scans for five years.
