My background is in the Armed Forces, Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME) of 17 years standing, from 1975 to 1992, reaching the rank of Staff Sergeant. Then, a Team Leader in a blue chip (Nestle/Cereal Partners UK) food manufacturing plant for 17 years, 1993 to 2010.
I retired shortly after my serious ill health issues saw me spend 5 weeks in Arrowe Park. A cliché perhaps, but I felt I should give something back to the hospital after they saved my life back in 2009. It also appealed to me to be a small part in helping how the Trust is run.
I hope to continue for my remaining period of office and help the Trust achieve further improvement.
