    I built my own self recording rain gauge out of an alarm clock biscuit tin and ping pong ball aged 11 yrs! It worked! I have been a member of the Royal Meteorological Society since 1974 (aged 13) and elected a fellow in 1985 for my work in health and the weather. I am a GP but worked full time in the Met Office between 1999 and 2005 to set up the health forecasting unit which now delivers Heat health, COPD and cold weather forecasts. I used to sit in main operations room in Bracknell then Exeter delivering health forecasts to the NHS.
    I have a good knowledge of meteorology but not too technical and get lost in some of the thermodynamics! I do know a lot about how it affects health though.
    I am still a half time GP and run a company called Intelligent Health that gets people more active outdoors. I am advising Shanghai about the their health forecasting service since the Met Office is not allowed to!
    I am still as passionate about the weather as I was when I got the first chart from my rain gauge!
