PPC - Bernard Holton
Born in Windsor and raised in Hastings. My father was a blacksmith and mother a nursery nurse. I attended the local Grammar School allowing me to obtain a University place at Cardiff and I was also awarded two RAF scholarship’s; one to train as a pilot and also a Cranwell Officer University scholarship .Cardiff University and The Open University led to a degree in Biochemistry and Psychology.
I then spent my entire career of 37 years in Medicine and Pharmaceuticals working with the NHS. The majority of this was in Carmarthenshire where our family has lived for 40 years. I have extensive knowledge of NHS Wales and Welsh Government, having advised and been a key member of numerous NHS/Government advisory committees. I was the Vice Chair of the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industries in Wales coordinating members to work with the NHS.
I joined REFORM UK as soon as it was formed and within weeks was asked to contest Swansea West in the welsh parliamentary Senedd election that May.
I have now been selected to contest the new constituency of Caerfyddin at the next General Election.
