John Gillies
Co-Director
Edinburgh Global Health Academy Compassion Initiative

• Chair of the Royal College of GPs Scotland 2010 to 2014. • Consultancy work for Scottish Government • Honorary Professor of General Practice at Edinburgh University • Senior Advisor to the Edinburgh University Global Health Academy • Co-Director Edinburgh Global Health Academy Compassion Initiative • Deputy Director Scottish School of Primary Care

I qualified from Edinburgh University and after junior hospital posts, worked as a medical officer in Malawi, Africa where I carried out research into the epidemiology of endemic goitre and cretinism. From 1985, I was a principal in rural general practice in Glenluce Wigtownshire and then for 16 years in Selkirk in Scottish Borders until 2013. I was a GP trainer and Training Programme Director with NHS Education Scotland until 2012.
I am interested in the core values and roles of general practice/family medicine at a time of enormous medical, societal and technological change. This currently includes integration of health and social care. I have published on coronary heart disease, remote and rural practice, philosophy of medicine and bioethics, and on global health.

My priorities as Chair RCGP Scotland were in promoting generalism, leadership in general practice and global health. I was member of the RCGP Ethics and International committees. I initiated programmes of work in several areas, including a national conference in 2013 on Compassion in Primary Health Care. I led a programme of work on rural general practice, which led to the publication of ‘Being Rural: exploring sustainable solutions for remote and rural healthcare’ in 2014.

Currently I am Deputy Director of the Scottish School of Primary Care, which provides both evidence and evaluation for the transformation of the NHS in Scotland towards primary care. I am a passionate believer in the importance of the humanities in healthcare, and chaired the editorial board for the second edition of Tools of the Trade, an anthology of poetry, produced in collaboration with the Scottish Poetry Library and gifted to all new doctors in Scotland. My work with the Global Health Academy is currently on activities and events on the University of Edinburgh Compassion Initiative including building on our links with Centre for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University. We are also working
closely with the inspirational Prof Ann Birgitta Pessi and her colleagues in the University of Helsinki on compassion and co-passion in the workplace.

I try to keep sane by listening to my wife Mary who is full of good sound common sense. Unlike me she had the good sense to retire a few years ago. I also go cycling in the beautiful Scottish Borders where we live, and catch an occasional salmon on the Tweed or the Ettrick.

Dr Harry Pope
GP, Fairfield, NSW, Australia
IFIC Fellow

I have been a general practitioner in Fairfield, NSW, Australia, for 35 years. During this time I worked initially in solo practice, developed my own medical centre and improved it by adding nursing and specialist staff. I then moved into a corporate organisation.

I am passionate about helping patients from disadvantaged backgrounds. Fairfield has a low socioeconomic demographic and is a suburb next to the Villawood immigration detention centre. The transition of refugees and asylum seekers through these suburbs has guided my career towards patient advocacy, mental health and refugee health.
Throughout my career I have been actively involved in working collaboratively within the health industry. Over the years, the Divisions of General Practice evolved into the Medical Locals and have now become the Primary Health Networks. With each of these entities I have been involved in continuing professional development and standard committees. With my passion for imparting knowledge within the profession, I joined the University of Western Sydney staff as a tutor for GP students.
During the last 12 years I have worked as a GP with Primary Health Care Limited (Primary), an organisation listed on the Australian stock exchange.

I worked as an executive clinician in assisting GPs and non-clinical staff to improve their standards through risk analysis, education and quality improvement. I was also exposed to high level business and financial analysis within the Medical Centres division. I have recently returned to being a fulltime GP and have assumed an active role in working on the Integrated Care committee which is a collaborative initiative between the South Western Sydney Local Health District and the Primary Health Network.
