Mark Allen - Cheshire Constituency

I have been treated as an in and outpatient at LHCH and as a CF patient and transplant recipient I feel I have a lot to offer and want to use my inside knowledge to effect. I am looking forward to being a link between the public and trust and with my skills in the PR and journalism industries feel I am ideal to do this. As a passionate supporter of the NHS I want to help The Trust move onwards and upwards to become even better.”
