I am an experienced manager and worker committed to delivering quality services and care. I have particular interests in mental health services for all ages without discrimination. I am passionate about ensuring that all care services for individuals are delivered to the highest standard.

I am a qualified psychiatric nurse and social worker. I have over 40 years of experience working in the health and social care sector as a clinical nurse specialist within a drug treatment service, as a hospital manager and as a service director of community psychiatric health care services. I have also acted as the director of young people's mental health services for Gloucestershire, before joining Practice Solutions. I have since been involved in various consulting and training projects aimed at improving the quality of services delivered by large health and social care organisations.
