Your Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Gedling

  • We will give everyone a new right to see their GP within seven days, or 24 hours if it’s urgent, with the extra doctors needed to make it happen.
  • We will invest in renewable power and home insulation to drive a strong economic recovery, bring down energy bills and create clean, secure, well-paid new jobs.
  • We will immediately fix our broken relationship with Europe, forge a new partnership built on cooperation, not confrontation, and move to conclude a new comprehensive agreement which removes as many barriers to trade as possible.

I was born in Nottingham and attended local schools in Woodthorpe and Arnold before moving away for University. I now live in Redhill with my wife and two children. After studying biological sciences and completing a Biochemistry PhD at St Andrews University, I worked locally in NHS research and research governance for ten years. During the pandemic I decided to retrain as a psychologist, completing an MSc in 2022. I am currently working as a research assistant.

I have been a committed member of the Liberal Democrats since 2006, standing in many local elections and as a parliamentary candidate in 2015 and 2017 (Nottingham East & Nottingham North).

My main interests are in better use of science in politics (including increasing the level of R&D spending in the UK), promoting greater understanding of asylum seekers, and in improving treatment of mental health issues.

Previously I was a publicly elected Governor of a mental health NHS Trust and I also volunteered with a charity, Freedom from Torture.
