Dr Stanton qualified in 1998 from Glasgow and completed early training and research there before registrar training in Oxford. His first Consultant appointment was at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon from 2010 to early 2019 where he led for asthma, and bronchoscopy and established the pleural service.

Dr Stanton moved to the North East in January 2019 with an appointment at the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle-upon-Tyne where he leads the pleural service and contributes to the severe asthma and lung cancer services while retaining a strong interest in general respiratory medicine.
