Senior manager of the UK Vision Strategy, Katherine Raven, said: “We are delighted Chris will be joining us at Vision UK 2015. Chris’s work in Devon and Torbay is a fantastic example of how the outcomes of the UK Vision Strategy can be delivered at a local level. He will provide valuable insight to Vision UK 2015 delegates about how he has worked collaboratively to ensure service users are placed at the centre of health and social care delivery.”
