Non Executive Director
I am a Non Executive Director of Supportive Care and significant financial backer of the business. I’m passionate about what we do because all patients, whether they be private or NHS, deserve the very best support throughout their illness. Given the choice, the vast majority of people would rather be at home than in a hospital, and one of my ambitions is for Supportive Care to make that choice a reality wherever possible.
As Clinical Director of Supportive Care UK I am committed to ensuring that our care is always delivered to the highest standards. Our ethos is to create real choices in the provision of supportive and palliative care, by offering novel and exceptional services to support our patients, both in hospitals and at home.
I have been involved with several businesses of differing sizes and activities including healthcare. I have been assisted with both financial and commercial aspects of Supportive Care UK since its inception and am looking forward to steady and sustainable growth in the business.
I joined Supportive Care UK to help grow and develop the service nationally. It is a hugely fulfilling role as I have the privilege of working with consultants, hospital staff and our ‘behind – the – scenes’ team to provide the very best supportive care for patients and their families.

As an experienced Executive Medical Director, I have worked with two of the largest NHS Health Organisations in the UK and an independent hospice for over ten years.

Head of Operations
I have been a medical secretary/practice manager for 32 years both in the NHS and private sector. The specialty of supportive care is both challenging and rewarding and knowing our Consultants make such a big difference to the quality of people’s lives, and those of their families, is one of the main reasons for my involvement as Head of Operations.
I have worked as a medical secretary in both the NHs and private sector for over 20 years. I joined Supportive Care UK to provide administrative help to all our consultants. I also provide secretarial support to our team of Paediatric Endocrinologists. It is rewarding to know that we are all committed to providing the best support and care for our patients and their families.
