I am Christine Morgan with a keen interest in Health, Education and life generally. In a previous life, before arthritic and spinal conditions robbed me of some of my stamina and mobility, I had a full time career in Education which I loved and even though that was cut short I remain interested in related issues.
Since then I have taken up part time Voluntary opportunities as a fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care and as a Trustee/Chair of Rochdale & District Mind Association. I am a passionate advocate of improvements to Mental Health services and to end the stigma associated with illness.
I first became professionally involved with the NHS as a Non Executive Director of a Primary Care Trust and have since then worked in different Non-Executive/Lay roles in the NHS and healthcare including working as an Independent Chair for the Greater Manchester Carers Strategic Group with the Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership..
I have also used my own lived patient and carer experience to influence improvements in person centred care, involvement/partnerships with patients, carers and the public and have worked with National Voices, the Coalition for Collaborative Care and Think Local Act Personal I remain a passionate advocate for making improvements to the quality of life for people with disabilities and long term conditions.
I am currently taking a break from any formal work and spending more time writing as I am an aspiring writer with a long way to go.
I have a great love and passion for all things literary and attend events whenever I can as well as visiting bookshops along the way.
Thank you for reading my Blog.
