Public Governor: Patient

“I was governor of WSHT from 2012/2015, and have continued on the Membership Committee, running events and seminars. I am very much “hands on” as a governor, I have volunteered at the hospitals during our busy times, and take the time to get patients opinions.

Having run my own business, starting in Care Homes it has grown through hard work, vision and re-investment. I am well placed to be a strong contact for the members and public.

My experience encompasses working for Mencap where I facilitated a campaign called “Treat me Right” raising awareness of learning disabled patients in the NHS. Following this campaign hospitals have been mandated to appoint a lead nurse for these patients. I have been a Registered Manager with The Care Quality Commission from 2006-2009 for The Queen Elizabeth Foundation.

I am skilled at taking an overview and working backwards from budget to ensure that the business is as efficient as possible allowing maximum re-investment benefiting patients and staff. I am keen to promote information technology’s positive benefits within the NHS.

I am a longstanding member of the Trust, attending seminars, workshops and have enjoyed meeting many other passionate foundation members, patients and staff. I truly believe that I have much to offer and would be delighted to work as a governor with the Trust.

Most importantly, I am a positive person, I always take an interest in individuals, their opinions and their experience of the service matter.”
