Prior to working for the NHS, David work for facilities services contractors in the commercial and public sectors.

David is a fellow of IHEEM, has an MBA from the University of Surrey and is currently working towards a Ph.D. in the faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Southampton. David’s research is focused on understanding the causal relationship between backlog maintenance and patient outcomes within the acute sector of NHS England. It is hoped that this research will set a foundation for greater study and understanding of the impact of the built environment on the patient journey. The research will identify further research opportunities to support the day-to-day management of estate both within and without the healthcare setting.
