Worcestershire County Council Candidate for Chaddesley
Candidate for Chaddesley
I am Chris Hand. I am a lifetime supporter and voter of the Labour Party. I have closely followed politics for many years and can honestly say this current Tory Government is the worst I have ever known. Their influence from the centre on local politics and the NHS over the last 10 years has been pervasive and devastating.
I am 69, married with two children, and a grandson born in January 2021. I have worked as a Library Manager at the Science Museum, Shell UK, 3i plc, and the NHS; retiring in 2014. I have managed excellent services to all those organisations through brilliant dedicated teamwork. I have campaigned to save jobs in the Library Service in Bewdley and the Bewdley Fire Station with Wyre Forest Labour in 2019.
I have been a member of the Patient Participation Group at Bewdley Medical Centre for 2 years, which I find very rewarding. I am trained to work as a volunteer providing Social Prescribing to patients starting later this year. If elected, I would like to work with others to improve the running of WCC in the areas of climate change, education and social care.
