‘I’m delighted to have been appointed as an iO lay council member. It feels like I’m joining the council at a very exciting time, with fresh opportunities for the profession’s development, increasing opportunities for individual members’ professional development, and new opportunities to demonstrate osteopathy’s value in meeting patient care and service delivery needs. I’m really looking forward to contributing to iO strategy in each of these areas.
