Additional Information

In 2016 I was elected to the ward of Hayley Green and Cradley south, in Dudley MBC, I was subsequently re-elected in 2021.

Since being elected I have been appointed to the Children’s and Health scrutiny committee before becoming Chair of Health scrutiny committee in 2017.

I was appointed cabinet member for Health in 2018 and also chaired the Health and Well Being Board.

In 2019 following a very challenging OFSTED inspection of our SEND service I was appointed Cabinet member for children's services, and have lived and breathed the improvement journey since.

I have lived within the Dudley Borough for most of my life and in 1990 started my apprenticeship as a Clinical Physiologist in Neurophysiology, I qualified in 1995 and have worked in the NHS ever since.
