Tim first started working in the NHS 16 years ago as a primary care service improvement manager looking at older people and medicines management. This followed work in the charity sector for Age Concern and as a priest in the Church of England. In the NHS, he then worked in a number of general management roles including clinical governance and quality assurance, risk management and corporate governance, programme management, strategy and planning.

Tim also acted as the Programme Director for the Stockport Together partnership.

Tim is interested in exploring how strategy harnesses and adjusts to the fast moving digitally driven world we all now live in and how we can develop community assets to support health outcomes.

He has an honours degree in geography and masters degrees in theology and organisational effectiveness and total quality management.

Outside work he loves the outdoors whether on the beaches of Anglesey or in the mountains of Snowdonia. Tim lives in Greater Manchester with wife Julie and has four children, three grandchildren and a dog.
