About Martin

martin group photoMartin Tod is Chief Executive of a national health charity, as well as a Hampshire County Councillor and Winchester City Councillor.

On the county council, he specialises in health and social care, and played a leading role in opposing Conservative cuts to support for older people which, as predicted, have led to a sharp increase in bed places lost due to patients being kept on in hospital after they are ready to go home and dramatic growth in the number of cancelled operations in local hospitals. He has also campaigned for improved road safety and for the council to take stronger action on air quality and the environment.

After studying economics at Cambridge, where he was President of the Union, Martin worked in international business for P&G for many years, before joining Vodafone as a senior marketing executive. Following this, he moved to work for Shelter - the housing and homelessness charity - before joining his current charity, the Men's Health Forum in 2013.

His interests outside work and politics include travel, photography, cycling and cooking.

Martin's priorities include:

  • Protecting local business and local people's jobs by stopping a damaging hard Brexit
  • Better funding for our local NHS
  • Stopping the proposed Conservative funding cuts to local schools
  • More affordable housing
  • Action on air quality and the environment
