She is currently also a Trustee with UK-Med (a humanitarian organisation providing urgent medical aid in disaster and conflict zones).  She is Treasurer of Aberfeldy Healthiest Town, Secretary of the Tennis Club and the lead individual for Aberfeldy’s potential Parkrun.

She says” my career in medicine was actually very complicated and led to me developing a set of qualifications and skills that are pretty unusual in most members of the medical profession! Some of these (Board level positions in both NHS and non-NHS organisations, responsibility for governance and risk, commissioning and procurement roles nationally and regionally) may be useful to the TASC project. I hope so!”
