David retired from the Regular Army last year as Director Army Nursing Services after 34 years’ service. He therefore brings a wealth of home and overseas operational health experience with him including working in austere clinical conditions and often in hostile environments. He initially volunteered to work with HART a year ago looking specifically at the health outcomes and impact of our partner PAORINHER in N Uganda.

He has subsequently joined the Board of Trustees with responsibility for oversight of HART projects and programmes across the piece and will continue to bring his planning, monitoring and evaluation experience to bear as well as providing health advice. David has wide experience at all levels as a Trustee and Non-Executive Director in ex-officio and voluntary posts at all levels. He is also a lecturer at Cumbria University where he leads on delivering Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response courses by e-learning and he serves as an Army Reservist in 77th Brigade delivering health security capacity building initiatives across the world. He lives in the North Pennines with his wife Helen and enjoys walking or running in the mountains.
