Dom joined North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) in 2012. He started in the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) for Cheshire and Merseyside as a 999 Call Handler. He progressed to other roles in the EOC, as a Dispatcher and Call Handling Supervisor before moving to Operations Directorate as an Emergency Medical Technician. He is currently seconded to the Clinical Hub within EOC, bringing his knowledge of Operations and EOC together to help patients.

Dom is the North West Ambulance Service LGBT Network Lead and has been in this position since 2013.

Dom works alongside Adam Williams in ensuring that NWAS supports its staff as much as possible working with senior officers to ensure representation at recruitments events and positive action days. Dom said, 'NWAS has supported both the National and Local networks from the start. It is great to see our membership growing as a Trust but also the interest in the national group expanding too. The national network is a great place for all of us to learn and grow both as individuals and as networks in a supportive and progressive environment'.
