Dr Paddy Fielder - Public Governor, Suffolk
Term of office started 1 February 2014
I'm a recently retired family doctor, having worked in the NHS since 1970. I worked at the Norfolk and Norwich and Ipswich hospitals. I also spent many years in rural general practice in Suffolk.
Besides caring for patients, I also taught medical students and graduate doctors.
Since retirement, I started and am involved in a patient participation group. I also chair the Debenham Project for the carers of those with dementia within my community.
