My aim in life is to live in a society which is fair and where all citizens are equal.
As a paediatrician who works with children in care, young people in the youth justice system and unaccompanied asylum seekers, and who is also a chair of governors in a Skipton sch ool, I care deeply about education, the NHS and services to young people and the vulnerable.
I have experience of caring for two parents with dementia and advocate for carers of people of all ages.
I strongly believe in the Lib-Dem principles of local democracy and local problem solving. This includes support for provision of low-cost housing in the area, whilst protecting the environment and tackling climate change.
