After completing his nurse training, Sharon continued to develop his professional practice in a variety of community based care environments. His first clinical informatics post, in 1997, was a launching pad to a national leadership role at the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) as the UK informatics adviser - a post he held until 2007. After a short career break abroad, Sharon re-joined the NHS as a Telehealth Nurse Specialist, a post he held until 2012.

Sharon joined Edinburgh University, nursing studies department, to lead and direct a number of MSc programmes before moving to the User institute. He is currently a CPD lead for the Data Driven Innovation (DDI) programme. His main research interests and activities focus on digital health and he actively supports research and development efforts by Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland.
