Mike and Sir Ranulph's expeditions included the first unsupported walk across Antarctica, and running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days. These and other jouneys, raised more than £4 million for medical charities and led to Mike receiving an OBE for 'Human Endeavour and Services to Charity' . Mike's NHS work has included his current role as a Consultant Gastroenterologist in Southampton and national work to highlight the need for better standards of nutritional care in both community and hospital settings. The latter included his leading the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) group that delivered guidance on nutrition support and he now leads new NICE work on guidance for prescribing intravenous fluids.
