My name is Collette Finnegan. In addition to being a Gloucester City Councillor I am also the Gloucester City Health Champion, a role which has already seen me involved in raising awareness of mental health issues. I was selected as Health Champion mainly because of my extensive experience and qualifications as a health professional. For over 30 years I was a senior nursing practitioner and I have worked as a health visitor with vulnerable families and been involved in many child protection cases. I was responsible for ward management in several hospitals including military.
I am CAMHS/counselling trained and I regularly use my skills in my councillor duties.
