Gordon trained at the Tayside College of Nursing and Midwifery, Ninewells Hospital & Medical School, Dundee, Scotland. I graduated as a Registered General Nurse in June 1991.
He relocated to Australia in February 1996 and was immediately employed at the Gold Coast Hospital (GCH) Southport where he was employed for 11 years and worked across many specialties including Wound Management, A&E, General, Plastics, ENT, Maxillofacial, Gynae and Urology Surgery.
