As Chair of the Board I am responsible, with my colleagues, for the governance of the company. I have spent my whole working life in health, social care and education. I started in the NHS and in the mid 1990’s was a Chief Executive of a London NHS Trust delivering mental health, learning disability and community services. I left the NHS in 1998 and ever since then have held Board level positions in companies in the sector. It is a privilege to work with the Liaise team in all our services. I am married with two grown up children and have recently moved from London after nearly 40 years to live in Sussex.
