“I qualified as a nurse in Sheffield, my home town where I went on to work in intensive care.”

“I took time out when I had my family, during which time I helped out at my local swimming club. I became involved with the lifesaving section which I have only just stood down from.”

“On returning to work I became a lecturer at the local College ending up as Area coordinator of Health and Social Care where I helped deliver a wide range of courses from basic level to H.N.C.”

“I took early retirement to look after my parents both of whom had dementia. They have since passed away. The experience gave me an insight into social services and the care of the elderly.”

“In 2013 I was treated in Doncaster for bowel cancer. The treatment was excellent and I felt I wanted to give something back hence my involvement with PPI in Leeds and why I am motivated to use my experience of cancer and its treatment to contribute a patient perspective to embedding research and scientific discovery, like genome testing, in the NHS for the benefit of patients in the future .”
