Meet the Team – Chris Stevenson

Chris Stevenson, Patient Representative of Home Mechanical Ventilation in Partnership (HMViP)

I was a General Practitioner Principal for thirty years before retiring in 2014. I was also a GP Trainer during this time. This basically means I don’t have any significant expertise in HMV but have a wide range of experience which I hope helps all in some way.

What is your interest in HMV?
I have been a grateful recipient of HMV since 2014.

When did you join the HMViP?
I joined the group in 2020

What do you personally hope to see the group achieve?
I would like to see HMV sensibly explained and to manage expectations in order to increase potential and current user understanding of this treatment option. Involving the user and carer team in this conversation with all the caring professionals is very important.
