Mark Oliver
Patient Advocate

Mark Oliver qualified as a solicitor in England in 1994, and settled in the US in 2000, Deciding to put ‘life’ first in the whole work/life balance equation, Mark retired from the law and now writes full time. In July 2014, he was struck down with a pulmonary embolism, and another PE a month later, and that’s when the problems started… With considerable time spent in  numerous hospital departments, Mark would like to make a positive contribution, as a Patient/Family Adviser, so that others can benefit from the joys of him wearing a backless hospital gown for so many months.
