IMPOWER’s Heroes of Christmas: 17 December

Our alternative advent calendar celebrates the people or teams who have inspired us this year.

David is just about to retire, having somehow managed to give both a lifetime of service to social services in Nottinghamshire (a full 37 years) and to have had a national impact on how social care is perceived in this country. As ADASS President, and as the lead for the Nottinghamshire Sustainability and Transformation Partnership, David’s quiet but authoritative voice has helped make the case for the central role of social care in integrated systems – winning over many in the loud-voice dominated NHS. While David absolutely deserves to enjoy his VW camper van in his retirement, I am also secretly hoping that he can still occasionally act as a voice of sanity in the sector!
