An elected Ward Councillor with both the Town Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council for Bridlington South. I have been an ally of Bridlington Health Forum for many years, a member for almost three years and a founding trustee since its inception as a charity. I recognise the huge workload that others have invested to achieve the influence, status and trust that the Forum currently enjoys.

5 Years of being a BHF member, I've witnessed ongoing erosion of accessible healthcare for Bridlington. Although the main concern is the managed decline of our wonderful modern hospital, Bridlington gets a raw NHS deal right across the board; GP services, Dental and Mental healthcare included.
