Peter is firmly committed to the National Health Service and to improving services for patients both within Somerset and nationally. He strongly believes that the patient’s perspective and input are of vital importance to the success of the ongoing changes to the NHS and the challenges faced. Being a member of the Clinical Operations Group provides the opportunity to do this. He currently chairs the Patients’ Participation Group for the practice where he is a patient and is an active member of the Regional Chairs’ network.
Following many years in general management, Peter has worked with a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sector both in the UK and beyond and hopes to use this experience to help the NHS in Somerset continue to improve services for the people of Somerset. During recent years his work has focussed on organisational performance improvement and effectiveness which form the areas of his special interest.
