Biography

Professor Watt comes from Aberdeen where he qualified in 1976. He is the Norie Miller Professor of General Practice and was also Head of the Department/Section of General Practice from 1994 to January 2009. 

After hospital posts in Shetland, Leicester, Aberdeen and Nottingham, he sought to combine training in epidemiology and general practice, moving to work with Dr Julian Tudor Hart at Glyncorrwg in South Wales, where they carried out a challenging series of community studies on the effect of dietary salt intake on blood pressure.

Moving to the community paediatrics scheme in Edinburgh, he then completed vocational training at Townhead Health Centre in Glasgow. During the next decade, he established the Glasgow WHO MONICA Project Centre, gained accreditation in public health medicine and worked first as a research manager for health services research in the Scottish Chief Scientist Office and then as a senior lecturer in public health at Glasgow University.

Since 1994, he has been Professor of General Practice at University of Glasgow – combining and requiring experience in medical education, clinical medicine, epidemiology, research management and public health advocacy. He has a long term research interest in health and disease in families which he began at Glyncorrwg and has pursued via the Ladywell Blood Pressure Study in Edinburgh and the MIDSPAN Family Study in the west of Scotland. He also has interests in inequalities in health and health care and in supporting the next generation of academic general practitioners and primary care researchers. 

He is Director of the University of Glasgow medical student electives programme.

He coordinates the Deep End Project, involving the 100 most deprived general practices in Scotland, and chairs the Programme Advisory Panel of the UK charity, Medical Aid for Palestinians.
