David's role at The Christie is to ensure that young people with cancer from across the North West have access to age-appropriate support and facilities. Although based at The Christie Hospital in Manchester, David works across Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and the South Cumbria Strategic Clinical Network.

David helps to improve services for young people across the North West by supporting service improvement and building links with colleagues across the region.

David says the best part of his role is getting to meet young people and their families and friends.

"I have been lucky to work with many inspiring young people - their attitude and approach to what is one of the most challenging times in their life is what makes the work worthwhile."
