Lead Governor

Lead Governor Term of Office:  1 Year – Ending at 2023 November Council of Governors’ Meeting

On a number of occasions, over recent years, Geraldine has supported and represented the Council of Governors’, as Acting Lead Governor, on behalf of MFT’s former Lead Governor and was delighted to be duly elected as Lead Governor by her peers in 2020.

Geraldine is passionate about being the collective voice for both public and staff Governors, having over thirty years of front line NHS service.

Geraldine’s inquisitive qualities and ability to ask appropriate probing questions, have enabled her Governor colleagues to receive assurance information on key issues that are in keeping with the Governor statutory role and duties.

Being actively engaged as a staff representative during MFT’s Young People’s event alongside building staff and patient networks across other hospital events has enabled Geraldine to engage with several disability, LGBT and BAME groups.

Being a key and guest speaker, at virtual, face-to-face and other external events, alongside being a leading figure in her profession, are very valuable attributes that Geraldine brings to MFT.
