I have been involved in the manual handling world for 10 years having been National Sales Manager with Cromptons Healthcare prior to them being purchased by MIP. I really enjoy my role covering England, Scotland & Wales meeting interesting people who all share a common goal to drive down staff back injuries & pressure sores or ulcers for patients.

I studied A levels in Geology, Geography & Environmental Studies, these are a great help on a daily basis in the world of safe patient handling ;)

I have been a member of NBE for 9 years & I joined NBE to improve my understanding of moving & handling. 

I live in Hampshire with my spaniel Barney & I have a son, George, who is 20 & a girlfriend Jenny. I enjoy travelling, watching live comedy, playing golf & poker.
