Over the past fifteen years Martin has been at the heart of the development of the personalisation agenda in the UK. He is now the Director of the Coalition for Collaborative Care, which launched in November 2014 to drive progress in personalisation with people with long term health conditions.

A qualified social worker, Martin worked for 20 years in councils, higher education and the third sector – managing, teaching, training, development and research. Between 2002 – 2011 he worked in various key roles with the English Department of Health:

  • North-West England regional advisor for learning disabilities and national lead for person centred approaches
  • Lead on self-directed support for the Care Services Improvement Partnership. For CSIP he led the delivery support to the Individual Budget Pilot Programme (later Personal Budgets) and supported the set-up of the Personal Health Budget Pilots
  • National Programme Manager for the Putting People First personalisation delivery programme
  • After the Department of Health, Martin brokered the set up and was the first manager of Think Local Act Personal and Head of Operations for In Control, the charity which pioneered self-directed support in England and which Martin co-founded in 2003

The Coalition for Collaborative Care is made up of almost 50 major national partners across the Health and Care system, including most of the Royal Colleges and Professional Bodies, large national charities, policy and system leading organisations (including NHSE), evidence and innovation bodies (including NESTA and the Health Foundation). C4CC is currently chaired by Prof Nigel Mathers Honorary Secretary of the RCGP.
