He has held many positions as Chair of Health Authorities and Trusts, including Trent Regional Health Authority from 1982 to 1994. He was a Council Member of the Medical Research Council from 1991-95 and on the NHS Policy Board 1994-95. He was awarded a knighthood in 1985.

In addition he currently serves on the Board of the Hull-York Medical School until July 2007 and is the Chair of both the Fitness to Practice Committee of HYMS and the Scarborough Area R & D Alliance.
Said Sir Michael, â€œI am delighted to accept the challenge to lead the Trust. Quality of service to patients and improved staff morale are extremely important. Clearly, a great deal of excellent clinical work is carried out by the Trust, and we must build on that, to improve the reputation of the entire organisation. In addition, I shall act on behalf of the Trust to ensure that we try to obtain our fair share of resources of both capital and revenue, to deliver good services in both rural and urban settings.â€?
Interim Chief Executive Iain McInnes welÂcomed the announcement, saying â€œThis appointment is very good news for the Trust. Sir Michael brings with him a wealth of valuable experience, and will undoubtÂedly be a great asset to the organisation.â€?
