An NHS Tayside doctor who fled Iraq has spoken of how he now splits his time between working in Iraq and Perth. The inspirational medic spends a third of his time working in his home country where he established both a teaching hospital and a lung institute setting up specialist treatment not previously available in Iraq.

And when he is not in Iraq or seeing patients at Perth Royal Infirmary, respiratory consultant Mudher Al-Khairalla is off training doctors all over the world.

Dr Al-Khairalla - who can barely remember his last day off - took a quick half hour out of his hectic schedule to recently talk to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.Mudher’s parents hail originally from the province of ThiQar which includes the city of Nasiriyah.
