Nurse Qualification obtained in December 1971 at Royal Air Force Hospital Cosford. After qualifying, I served at various medical centres and military hospitals, on one detachment I drove the crash ambulance.
I served in the Princess Mary’s Royal Air Force Nursing Service until 1996. My last tour of duty was at RAF Brize Norton in a supervisory capacity and ran my own minor clinics. Whilst on my resettlement course, I obtained a certificate in Safety Management in December 1995 and a NEBS Management Diploma in May 1996. After leaving the RAF, I worked in a private nursing /care home as a Senior Nurse. In 2010 I obtained my Trainers Certificate (City and Guilds 3000) and I worked in the home until I was made redundant in April 2013.
I was admitted into the order of St John Ambulance as a Serving Brother in February 1996.
I was a Nursing Officer and for a while a County Staff Officer in community care.
I trained as a community responder with SCAS. Whilst a member of St John Ambulance, I was a member of St John keeping up to date with first aid and defib training, I retired from St John at the age of seventy.
I have been a School Governor, and member of a scrutiny panel for a housing association.
I am now a Town Councillor and Chair of one committee and vice chair of the environmental working group.
I am also Chairman of the local branch of the Royal British Legion.
