Prior to this he has held National leadership roles in Neurology, Neurosciences and Cancer and had been involved in development of Health Policy. Matt trained in Palliative Care Medicine in Liverpool and Birmingham and was appointed to his first Consultant Post in 2001. Matt is an Honorary Professor of Health and Behavioural Sciences at Bangor University. He worked at the Pain Relief Foundation in the 1990s with Dr Jack Morley developing treatment protocols for the analgesic use of Methadone. 

He is passionate about addressing inequalities in health, quality improvement and the role of clinical leadership in improving health systems. His talk will reflect the opportunities and that Leadership within the NHS presents to improve systems of supportive, palliative and end of life care: he will also challenge some of the expected norms in Palliative Care.
