About Thabo Miller

Based: Somerset
Thabo Miller grew up in the Tory heartlands of Mid Somerset, before moving to the North East of England to learn folk music. Unfortunately, medical school interfered with this and he returned to the South West still unable to play his accordion.

Whilst in the North East, Thabo continued a family tradition and became involved in the Communist Party of Britain; being a member of the Northern District committee and being the Northern District representative on the Elections Preparation Committee at the 52nd Party Congress in 2012. He is a member of the Communist Party of Britain commission in the People’s Assembly Against Austerity.

Thabo is the convener of the Teesside People’s Assembly, and was a member of the North East People’s Assembly steering committee before he moved to the South West. He is currently involved in establishing further local and a regional group in Somerset.

Thabo is currently working as a Trust Grade surgeon in the South West of England, with a view to paediatrics as a long term career plan. He also holds an Honorary Clinical Lectureship in Medicine, Pharmacy and Health at Durham University, and is a member of the Medical Education Research Group there, with research interests in improving assessment quality, and in patient safety.

In his personal life, Thabo enjoys camping, walking, going to festivals and playing folk music.
