Keith has been the Charity Director and a member of the Senior Finance team at Northampton General Hospital for the past ten years after a career in the Rail industry in which he was actively involved in supporting the changes leading up to the industry’s privatisation.

Keith’s early third sector involvement was with Christian based charities, primarily in Methodist Church related roles, which currently includes being the Northampton Methodist Circuit Treasurer.

From the first week of joining the hospital the effective promotion and operation of the NGH charity became a key part of his role. The charity responsibilities subsequently have expanded to include the overseeing of the local Community and Mental health funds. He has recently guided the charity through adoption of independent status.

Keith has been the representative for Northampton General Hospital for a number of years at NHS Charities Together meetings, and has been a member of the working group looking at the DoH proposals for changes in Charity governance arrangements. Keith believes NHS Charities Together has an important role in relation to enabling its members to effectively implement the anticipated changes, along with the wider challenge of supporting growth in the contribution the charitable sector makes to enhancing health provision.

Keith was elected to be a Trustee of NHS Charities Together in 2013 and was appointed Treasurer in 2016.
