I've been a patient at Wallingbrook since 2007, when we moved to Burrington from Berkshire, after taking early retirement.

I am married, with 3 adult sons and have been involved with charities and public services for many years, although professionally, as a mathematician, I worked in Aerospace and Financial Services.

My reasons for becoming a member of the PPG was my interest in how services are delivered and the use of IT systems.  I am currently Chair of the Patient Participation Group.

Susan TaylorS Taylor

My name is Sue, and my husband Jon, can be found four days a week at Then & Now, the antique shop in Fore Street in Chulmleigh.

Qualifying as a Pharmacist in 1979 I worked full time in Community Pharmacy until having children, after which I worked part-time as a Pharmacy Locum for a wide variety of pharmacies. For the last ten years I have been primarily involved in industry managing all aspects of Human Resources including staff welfare and health. Moving to Winkleigh in 2015 I am now semi-retired.

I hope to be able to bring to Wallingbrook PPG those issues and ideas that I hear from residents and patients of the catchment area. I am very willing to visit anyone wanting to have an issue raised with the PPG and unable to get out easily, I am available (privately) any time the shop is open, or at home in Winkleigh.

I have particular interest in the needs of children with "Spectrum Disorders", having children with Asperger's and family children with dyslexia.

Please contact Wallingbrook for my contact details.
