About Pat

Pat moved to North Yorkshire from Bristol after retiring from a career in health and social care, where she worked in community development, voluntary organisations, and in teaching and research. This experience underpins her ongoing concerns to understand and address inequalities in society.

During her career, Pat has developed service user/customer involvement in a university department’s teaching programme, and worked within different health organisations.

Pat is currently a governor of her local hospital and involved in different voluntary activities in her local community.
