Tony is a registered nurse in general psychiatric nursing as well as being a registered health visitor, and is proud that he has managed to maintain his registration throughout his career. Whilst in the NHS he worked his way through the system to become an NHS Trust CEO before moving into the private sector in both health and non-health related roles as a Chief Executive.
He has managed specialist healthcare businesses in the independent sector as well as running a consultancy in healthcare advice and turnaround. More recently he has also been a non-executive chairman in the independent sector and non-executive director in the NHS, most recently at East of England Ambulance Trust.
Tony has brought this public, private and now not-for-profit experience to this role in palliative care, and hopes these skills, developed over nearly 4 decades in healthcare, will contribute to the continuing success of the hospice.
