Position currently held on Manchester LDC – Treasurer and Administration Secretary for the last 10 years. LDC member for 14 years. BDS qualified Manchester 1987. Also qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Price Waterhouse in 1991 (now non-active). I have worked for the last 16 years in Benchill, Wythenshawe in an NHS practice.

I currently also act as a Clinical Executive (Dental) member of NHS Manchester and sit on their Primary Care Programme Board and Clinical Executive Committee.

I strongly believe in the ethos of NHS provision but have concerns about its future, with specific reference to how it may impact on younger members of our profession.
