Andrew Ratcliffe

Public Governor: Arun District

“I joined the Council of Governors last October as an Appointed Governor for Arun and have been an active member since then and therefore seek to continue as an elected Governor.

Having lived in Walberton for 25 years and raised 4 children there, I have a long-term connection with Arun District and having retired in Summer 2018 now have the time to support local activities by being a Parish Councillor in addition to the Governor role.

Most of my working life was as a company Managing Director, latterly as UK MD for a global consumer products company for which I also sat on the European board. In 2016 I was awarded an Honorary MSc from the University of Hertfordshire in recognition of outstanding achievement. I was also a long-term director of a Trade Association with 5 years as Chairman experience which is ideally suited to the role of Governor.

My primary interests as a Governor cover compliance and patient experience via the Trust board meetings and Council of Governors’ meetings. Attending other meetings is important to keep me fully informed on the complex workings of the Trust across the three hospitals.”
