Dr Page trained in London, Bristol and Southampton. Appointed as consultant neurologist at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in 2008, with 4 colleagues he provides general adult neurology cover for the whole of Dorset. In addition, he set up and runs the Dorset Epilepsy Service with two epilepsy specialist nurse colleagues, providing a specialist service to adults with epilepsy across the county. His clinical research interests include magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy.
An interest in computers and technology began with early home computers in 1982. Since 2009 he has been the Clinical Safety Officer for Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and additionally has been the Chief Clinical Information Officer since 2014. He has previously prototyped and developed commercial software for medical workforce management. He currently leads a collaborative project to develop and deploy an expert system for neurological diagnosis with an intuitive graphical interface, funded by the Wessex Academic Health Science Network.
In 2014 he was part of a consortium which was awarded over £700,000 from Innovate UK as part of the Digital Health competition. This project is based on ideas that came from the challenges of delivering specialist epilepsy services to a rural population with poor transport networks. The aim is to develop an innovative approach to improve epilepsy care delivery that has tight integration of patient held electronic records with wearable technology and care records as core.

He has substantial experience in multi-disciplinary research (involving psychology, sociology, engineering and computer science) on the use of sensing technology and virtual reality for specific real world applications. He is PI of an EPSRC project (EP/J010766/1) investigating the use of gesture interfaces, RFID sensor devices and 3D Virtual Worlds for older people with dementia, with a specific focus on how the residents and carers perceived the use of novel technology in care home environments. He is a CoI of an EPSRC funded multi-institutional grant (EP/K025201/1), where he is leading a work package on mobile tracking of human behaviour in the context of word life balance in private and corporate settings. He is also a CoI of a NIHR project with UCL and sex clinics looking into the use of mobile technology to support positive health behaviour change, through in depth studies of patients’ behaviour, perception of technology use, and obstacles of change.
