I QUALIFIED as a doctor from University College London and after working in London and Reading as a house doctor and for NHS England.
I started my general practice career as a registrar at the Bell Surgery and went on to gain a law degree from Oxford University.
What I feels matters in Henley are the issues surrounding the need for a third bridge over the Thames, the need to sort out the use of the roads and do something about the level of pollution, the need to ensure the town thrives, bringing business and jobs for the local people, and the need to work towards equitable housing.
Being effective as a councillor requires hard work and commitment, something I have demonstrated in my previous roles. As a GP, I have insight into the health provision plans from the ground level and I am aware of the strains and constraints on budgets and future care of the elderly. My work as a doctor has been as the patients’ advocate and I now wish to be the people’s advocate in Henley. I know the value of a loud and persuasive voice.
I believe the town council needs to concentrate its effort on improving the lives and environment of its population and that money be spent wisely to the benefit of the whole area.
