Chief Executive Officer

Alison started her working life in Marks and Spencer, working in accounts and then the food division in Baker Street London.

After graduating from the University of Kent with a degree in Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management she joined the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme.

The majority of her NHS experience has been in primary care. Previously she worked as a neighbourhood commissioning manager in Liverpool starting with just 7 GP practices, growing over time to over 20 practices as a Primary Care Trust Director of Planning and Performance.

Alison has also worked as part of a national “turnaround” team focusing on improving performance in NHS organisations including the ambulance service. She has worked with West Cheshire for nearly 10 years. Her personal ambition is to help everyone feel part of the NHS and for the 250,000 people in West Cheshire to live the best life possible.

As well as working for the NHS, Alison enjoys a busy family life. She is married to a photographer and is a mother to two children. She is Chair of Birkenhead District Scouts and enjoys all the challenges that this work-life balance brings.
