Alison Jones

Alison Jones is a recently retired Advanced Practitioner Radiographer, with more than thirty years’ experience working in various positions within Gloucestershire. She gained Postgraduate qualifications, completing several specialist courses to acquire her posts at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and community hospitals.

She also has ten years’ experience within the private healthcare sector and was an elected representative for the Society of Radiographers.

During her career Alison lived in the Forest of Dean, where she raised two children and always felt well supported by the local healthcare provision. After semi-retiring in 2012 she worked at Dilke and Lydney Hospitals, enjoying daily patient contact and the ability to deliver an efficient and empathetic service.

Alison said “My partner and I recently had complex health issues diagnosed and treated in an exemplary way and have returned to a normal, fulfilled life. This reinforced the patient perspective and how important good quality healthcare is to all of us. I passionately believe that every person should be able to access prompt, effective treatment, preferably close to home and will strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for all patients, particularly in the Forest of Dean.”
