I have many years’ Board level experience. I started my career in political research and have since worked in marketing, customer research and international education. I have been an advisor on many NICE Guideline Development Groups and a patient representative for the British Heart Foundation Council. My NHS experience includes roles in acute trusts, community trusts and commissioning organisations. Prior to this year, I was Deputy Chair and Lay Member for Primary Care Commissioning at BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire CCG. A member of the Disabled NHS Director’s Network, I am currently Non-Executive Director for the BSW Integrated Care Board, chairing the People and Remuneration Committees. I am currently a public contributor member on the BHF Data Science Centre CVD-COVID UK/COVID-IMPACT Approvals and Oversight Board.
