Why are you passionate about public health and care across Cheshire and Merseyside?

Having been lucky enough to have worked in the NHS for nearly 39 years I have a deep sense of public service and desire for change to improve health and social care outcomes.

A key part of my role is working in partnership with other key stakeholders including Sefton Council, the community voluntary faith sector, health and social care providers, housing, education and politicians.

I am a nurse, midwife and health visitor by profession. My health visiting roots give me a real passion for supporting communities and the work that is required to promote good health to tackle health inequalities and improve outcomes. In my varied career I have been fortunate to work with fantastic leaders and I now act as coach and mentor to promote and prolong the values of the NHS.

What do you do to improve your health and mental wellbeing on a day-to-day basis?

I am a bit of a ‘Rock Chick’ so I like nothing more than to listen to progressive rock music which invigorates me and takes me back to my youth!
