Current work

I currently work for the Horizons team at NHS England, where I am responsible for the School for Change Agents and other projects; particularly around large virtual participation eevents.

In September 2021 I join the Public Participation Team at NHS England to improve patient and public involvement in health service design and delivery.

Volunteering

Since Novemer 2017, I have been a non-executive director of Democracy Club, a social enterprise using digital tools to promote democratic participation in the UK. My four-year term comes to an end shortly, and I'm keen to find other trustee/non-exec roles in social enterprises or charities.

I'm also interested in short term consultancy volunteering opportunities, particularly with small charities looking to fundamentally rethink how they deliver what they do.

Heart defect

I have a congenital heart defect, and since 2005 I have had an ICD fitted.
