He has also been a member of the independent reconfiguration panel, and an assessor for the national clinical assessment service. He holds a non-executive director role within the Private Finance sector.
Stephen is a keen advocate of role development and skill mix and helped establish an award-winning vascular access service led by nurse practitioners in his Trust. He has been involved with undergraduate and postgraduate medical education and is an OSCE examiner for Manchester Medical School.
Stephen became an NEBDN Trustee, in 2020 and is a member of the NEBDN’s financial effectiveness and business committee.
