Stephen Chamberlain, representing Brent
Stephen believes that the NHS will in the future be more service-user led and says the needs of the user should be at the centre of their treatment and care within the NHS. More emphasis is placed on 'wellbeing and recovery' and Stephen has recently taken on a new active role as a 'hospital trust governor'.
