Baroness Audrey Emerton - UKCC Chair of and Chief Commander of St John Ambulance

  • Comment

Audrey Emerton’s career began in 1953 and she is still going strong as a cross-bencher in the House of Lords.

Her peerage was given in 1997 for her services to nursing and St John Ambulance, where she was chancellor and chief commander.

She was responsible for the 1988 closure of the Darenth Park Hospital in Kent, an asylum for people with learning difficulties, and chaired the UKCC. Keeping small talk to a minimum, she prefers to speak up when it really matters.
