Campaign Team Member
Career: Retired Senior Project Manager
South Gloucestershire

In 2015 I retired from my career as a senior project manager for a global IT services corporation.

 

Outside work I became involved in patient advocacy and I co-founded a charity to promote opportunities for cancer patients to use their experience to bring independent influence to clinical research.

 

I am supporting the challenge to the CHC scandal for two reasons: 

 

Firstly, my late mother suffered unnecessarily in the last few years of her life because health and social care professionals deliberately downplayed her care needs to avoid providing her with the NHS-funded end of life care she was entitled to receive.

 

Secondly because I know several other families who have been subjected to the same sort of dishonest and scandalous conduct in 2020.
