Staff Governor (Non-Clinical and Support)

Staff Governor for Non-Clinical and Support

Term of Office: 3 Years – Ending at 2020 Annual/Special Members’ Meeting

I’m Head of Information Governance and a former Staff Governor.  I’ve worked at several local hospitals over the past 36 years and seen many changes, but I feel that this is the most exciting time for healthcare, particularly for patients and staff in Manchester, Trafford and beyond.

My involvement in the merger process as a former Governor included looking at the new Trust’s constitution and assessing the process that led to the creation of Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.  I feel that the new Trust will bring many benefits, including improving access for patients, and the quality of care and overall experience.

Our new organisation, which is cited as being the biggest of its kind in the country, I feel will ultimately benefit from having an effective Council of Governors who have the necessary skills and experience.   I am pleased to represent Non-Clinical and Support staff across all sites and will work hard to make sure your views are represented and heard.
