I joined the Chaplaincy team at CUH after moving from Suffolk to the Cambridge area in November 2004. In 2012 I became the Chaplain at Arthur Rank Hospice where I also lead the patient and family support team. I remain as a chaplain on-call at CUH, RPH and ARHC.
I am also the Bishop of Ely’s advisor on healthcare and chaplaincy, the president of the association of hospice and palliative care chaplains and honorary chaplain to the Goodwood road racing club at Goodwood motorsport events in West Sussex.
I was born and educated in London. After school I trained as a maxillofacial technician and worked in a number of London hospitals, and then moved to Ipswich where I worked in Ipswich hospital for 7 years.
Whilst in Ipswich I was very involved in the church in a rural benefice.
Having been called into the ordained ministry in the Church of England, I trained at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford. Upon ordination in 2001 I went back to Ipswich as the curate at St. Augustine's church and remained there until November 2004.
