Dr John was born locally and completed his secondary education at Dulwich College. He won a place to read Medicine at Cambridge and graduated with a 1st class honours degree winning the Albert Hopkinson Prize for Medicine at Emmanuel College.

He has worked at some of the premier hospitals at home and abroad giving him a world class training. As a Chest doctor he has rotated through training posts at the Royal Brompton, the Hammersmith, Royal Free and University College.
