Peter is a health policy and public affairs expert and advises a range of clients from across the health economy, including pharmaceutical firms, social care providers and third sector groups.
Before joining WA, Peter was Senior Policy and Campaigns Adviser at the Royal College of Physicians where he helped transform the way the organisation campaigns and engages with stakeholders. Prior to that he worked for two other large agencies in their health teams, working closely with clients, including pharmaceutical companies and professional bodies, to plan and implement end-to-end communications activity and achieve tangible policy change. He also has significant experience working with the third sector, having worked in the Patients Association’s policy and campaigns team, leading its response to the Health and Social Care Act, and advising charity clients on their public affairs and communications activity. He began his career working in Parliament for Charles Kennedy, the late former leader of the Liberal Democrats, and Lord Dholakia, a Liberal Democrat peer.
Peter is originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and has a strong interest and background in Northern Irish politics. Outside work, he can often be found at Southwark Cathedral where he sings with the Merbecke Choir, watching the rugby at his local, church-crawling in the countryside, or in the kitchen cooking.
