Christine has lived in Wiltshire for the last forty years. She is married and has raised her two children in the county. She has a long term interest in health and social care issues, having had a career in social work and was also a commisioner for health and social care services. She has chaired the Board of Healthwatch Wiltshire, now Evolving Communities, since its inception.

He lived in Marlborough as a boy and made his home there again twenty five years ago. He has three children, seven grandchildren and a dog called Rigby.
Shiena has a passion for seeking improvements to people’s experience of health and care. Since joining the Board in January 2016, she is absorbing the current changes, new partnerships and continuing to be involved with volunteering. She will support Healthwatch Wiltshire to listen to local voices on matters of concern and try to make a positive difference.
Dr Anil Kuber joined the Board of Directors in January 2017. Anil brings to the Board his expertise in mental health and primary care services, gained over 35 years working as a GP.
