Dan Doherty is an NHS Director in the Mid and South Essex region, living in Maldon. 

I’ve always been a very active and sporty person. Rugby and running have been my lifelong sports, but I also enjoy cycling and walking, and I’m a coach at Maldon Cricket Club. To me, “Find Your Active” means trying to get out and do stuff with my family as much as possible.

I’m an Active Essex board member and passionate about the benefits of physical activity. I’m also an NHS Director in the Mid and South Essex ICS and in my role, I see a huge need and value in promoting activity amongst our population. I believe physical activity is arguably the most important thing we can do to improve our physical and mental health.  I want to be an active ambassador and promote that, which is why I wanted to get involved with the Find Your Active campaign.
