Dr Hullah is also chair of the Clinical Cabinet, which brings together the necessary expertise to buy healthcare for the people of north Hampshire.

1. Who was your childhood hero and why? Just William – he was the lovable rogue that I wanted to be, but I lacked the nerve!

2. What is your most precious possession and why is it important to you? Our family photograph collection – you cannot buy memories.

3. What was the first record/CD you bought? I think the first proper album I bought was Jazz by Queen.

4. What is the radio/television show you hate to miss? The BBC News – it’s a bit sad but I’m a real news and current affairs addict.

5. What is your favourite film? Some Like it Hot.

6. What is your pet hate? Cheating.

7. What are you reading at the moment? Anything by Lee Child or Scott Mariani – I usually only read novels when I go on holiday. I look on it as a real treat.

8. If you were choosing a last meal, what would it be? Prawn Dhansak with pilau rice, onion bhaji and a plain naan…preferably from Hook Tandoori or The Raj at Black Dam!
