I was an NHS GP for 34 years, practicing at a small family Health Centre in Oxford for 25 of these. A large amount of GP work is supporting people who have mental health problems or need some emotional support.
I became involved with The Abingdon Bridge 4 and a half years ago and have been a trustee for over 4 years. I really enjoy working with our team of staff, volunteers, and trustees to provide an excellent service for young people in Abingdon. I am in awe of how the staff engage with young people and offer them a holistic approach.
I particularly enjoy working with the staff and helping with their training programme. My medical background has proved helpful in the provision of Covid safe working during the pandemic.
