Dan worked as an NHS complaints advocate for some years before joining Healthwatch Suffolk in 2013.
One of his roles at Healthwatch is to facilitate the HWS mental health focus group. From this he has gained a fairly comprehensive knowledge of how mental health services are commissioned in Suffolk, which organisation provides which service (and how well!) and where the gaps in provision currently are.
With a fun and lively sense of humour, Dan says he has often been mistaken for the American actor Brad Pitt!
