Peter first moved to Ashington 50 years ago and has returned to North Seaton three times over the five decades. Through out his life he has kept in touch with the area despite moving away several times and having a family.

Peter worked in the NHS for over 30 years  before his retirement and for part of that time was Chief Executive to Northumberland Family Health Services Authority. He also became a teacher at 57 and worked in probation for eight years so is familiar with the wider determinants of health and social care.
