Mike commenced his working life as a hospital porter. What has stayed with him is a firm belief in the difference we can all make as individuals, no matter what our role, to the wellbeing of patients.

Subsequently Mike has been a Director at University Hospital Birmingham FT and at Sandwell and West Birmingham Trust where he was acting CEO for short time.
Between these roles Mike has spent a year working in a teaching hospital in Chicago, supported 37 GP practices to create a Federation, set up the Birmingham and Solihull Lift Company, and led two large health economy wide strategic change programmes.
