Jack Czauderna

Jack has been a Family Doctor for most of his working life. He was a GP in Darnall for nearly 30 years and founded Darnall Well Being over 20 years ago. Jack remains very influenced by the famous ‘Peckham Experiment’ (1935 – 1950) into the nature of health, and felt that it was not enough to treat disease and care for the sick, but that primary care should also have a responsibility for the health of the communities it serves. He was the Chair of Darnall Well Being for a long time, and it has grown and developed to meet the needs of its communities. Jack feels privileged to remain a DWB trustee.
