I qualified as a Social Worker in 1974 & have considerable experience in all aspects of work with adult service users & the organisations with which they have contact. I have worked in Community Teams, Hospital Teams & Residential Care, as well as in an advisory capacity in a Local Authority Central Office. I have managed teams in these sectors, undertaken a considerable amount of training, & provided training, mentoring & supervision to others. I have been seen as able to provide expertise, knowledge and experience in my chosen field of work, & been involved in the investigation of complaints. I have worked closely with Health colleagues in a number of different Hospital settings.
