Don and Chris Alderton
Don Alderton has worked in health care since 1963. After fourteen years service in the Royal Army Medical Corps including five years seconded to an overseas force he left the army to go to university and qualify as a pharmacist. He has managed and owned a number of pharmacies and has worked as the medical devices registration specialist for a leading surgical equipment manufacturer.
His experience in medical device regulation makes him well qualified to ensure that Sleep-Safe Anti-Suffocation pillows conform to the essential requirements of UK legislation and the relevant EU Directives. Don is a Member of the Institute of Directors.
He is registered with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, and regular sessions as a locum community pharmacist help to keep him up-to-date with health care issues. He gives presentations to interested groups on ‘The Actions and Uses of Drugs’.
For six years Don was Secretary of the Chester Branch of Arthritis Care (400+ members) with overall responsibility for co-coordinating the group activities including hydrotherapy, holidays and branch meetings. During that time he negotiated a substantial 3-year National Lottery grant which enabled the introduction of new local initiatives aimed at reducing the problems of social isolation stemming from arthritis and low income.
Don’s wife Chris Alderton, MA is a Health Visitor and psychotherapist and manages CATTS - Chris Alderton Therapy and Training Services - which provides counselling services for GP surgeries and private clients and counselling skills training for health care and social care workers.
Don and Chris have two grown up children.
