Head of Health Services
I have worked within the Merseyside voluntary sector for more than 25 years. Before joining Citizens Advice in 2000, I worked for women's health groups and domestic abuse services. I have a clear commitment to reducing health inequalities, through the development and delivery of practical and life-enhancing services, for people furthest away from these services.
For two decades, I have focused on developing Citizens Advice Liverpool’s pioneering Social Prescribing model, which provides access to practical advice and community-based wellbeing activities to patients who are assessed by their GP team as vulnerable to mental distress. Having worked within Liverpool’s diverse communities, I am committed to ensuring that poverty, gender and ethnicity lenses are placed firmly within the developing Social Prescribing models.
