I have worked at national level for the Department of Health, working directly with Ministers and senior civil servants such as the Permanent Secretary.   I have also worked as a NHS non-executive director responsible for patient safety and engagement and Chair of various committees and I have been a Trustee for a Hospice. I currently work part time for a national charity, Action on Addiction, and I am Chair of a Norwich based charity, Julian Support,  whose clients include those with mental health issues and homelessness. I also work as an interim executive, usually in organisations that are failing, in communications, risk and governance.
