I have had a varied career in politics, voluntary, public and private sectors.
A Labour MP and Cabinet Minister (Secretary of State for Health) in Blair Governments.
Chair of Norfolk & Waveney Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), so closely in touch with health and social care provision.
I also hold various non-executive directorships including Senior Independent Director, BT, and director, GetLink. Senior adviser, FTI Consulting, Sutherland Global Services.
I'm happy to offer career support via phone or email about careers in politics and the health sector.
At Newnham I read English Literature.
I hope that's helpful and look forward to seeing the profile.
