MacGregor trained at Charing Cross Hospital where he was taught by the distinguished nephrologist, Pofessor Hugh de Wardener.[1] MacGregor's own speciality at this stage was also in kidney disease.[1] He developed an interest in the relationship between kidney function and high blood pressure which led him to a parallel campaigning role, attempting to persuade food manufacturers to reduce the quantity of salt in factory produced food.[2]

More recently he has become chairman of Action on Sugar.

MacGregor is also honorary consultant physician at St George's Hospital, London, and a visiting professor at St George's Hospital Medical School, London.[1]
