Mike Rymer

Non-Executive Director & Deputy Chairman

Mike became a Non-Executive Director when he retired from his clinical role as a consultant gynaecologist for the Trust, which he had held since 1992.

After qualifying and initial training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Mike spent 12 years as a GP before retraining to become a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, and was appointed in Worthing in 1992.

In 2013 Mike was elected as a Staff Governor representing the Trust’s medical workforce on the Council of Governors.

Outside of his gynaecology role, Mike has also been chair of the BMA local negotiating committee, chair of the Sussex gynaecological tumour group, a member of the speciality training committee of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and chair of the medical advisory committee of Goring Hall Hospital.

His wealth of clinical knowledge and expertise, as well as his experience as an employee of the Trust, make him an ideal member of the Board.
