Originally from Swansea, Gurmel moved to Hatfield to attend the University of Hertfordshire for initial degree in pharmaceutical science after progressing to pharmacy at De Montfort University in Leicester.
Having worked in forensic toxicology, career progression led Gurmel to work for Public Health England (PHE) developing and manufacturing biopharmaceuticals. Whilst at PHE he attained a master’s in healthcare management from Swansea University.
Gurmel moved back to Swansea in 2016 where he currently works as a manager in the National Health Service (NHS), overseeing research in Wales and leading staff approving research at NHS sites. Gurmel works closely with counterparts in England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland so that research processes are aligned and therefore provide a better availability of research to participants. He is also a Vice-Chair Governor at a local primary school.
Gurmel is passionate about supporting diversity in the community, the links between social housing and healthcare which falls in line with the same beliefs and values of the Coastal way.
