Chair of Human Resources and 
Remuneration Committees
Finance and Resources Committee

I worked in NHS management for 38 years, in a variety of NHS Trusts across South West London, and later in Workforce Development in the East of England, Wessex as well as the Department of Health. Before retiring in 2016, I was Director for Health Education England’s Southern and Midlands & East regions. My previous roles include a range of Chief Executive and HR Director roles in three NHS Trusts and a PCT, having started life as a Pharmacy Porter in Sheffield.

Following retirement, I retrained as a coach practitioner. Having grown up in Manchester, I am a lifelong supporter of Manchester United and regularly make the trip North to Old Trafford. I also play golf (terribly) and do my best to keep in shape.

I joined St Raphael’s Board in 2017. I have been consistently impressed by the standard of care offered by the St Raphael’s team and by the wonderful work of our staff and volunteers.
