(John also serves as the Caldicott Guardian and the Registered Person for Weston Hospicecare.)
John joined the hospice in June 1995 as a hospice community nurse specialist. Before this, he spent a number of years abroad, some of which were spent doing relief work; this led him into nursing.
He trained as a registered general nurse in Torquay and later qualified as a registered mental nurse.
After working for Rowcroft Hospice, John moved to Weston Hospicecare, where he has continued to build and develop his skills to serve the people of Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding areas.
