Within his role at Catterick, Paul lead on the development of numerous strategic health pathways, specifically designed for military dependent children and young people. Paul's research and presentation at the National School Advisory group has singlehandedly influenced
the development of the Military Families Pathway for School Nursing and Health Visiting, the first of its kind.
Paul is currently providing specialist advice nationally to members of Parliament, the Department of Health, Public Health England and the social care sector regarding the many issues military dependant children, young people and young carers experience.
