Public Governor (Manchester)

Public Governor for Manchester Constituency

Term of Office: 3 Years – Ending at 2022 Annual/Special Members’ Meeting

I’ve lived in Manchester all my adult life and was pleased to be re-elected to the Council of Governors as I want to continue to actively contribute to the NHS. I believe in an NHS that remains free for patients and in public ownership, rather than the private domain.

My experience as a Trust Governor has included training, attending and participating in meetings and seeking assurance about the Trust’s performance.

In my previous working life I managed a number of large scale regeneration projects on behalf of Manchester City Council. This experience I feel will continue to help me to effectively contribute as a Governor and support the Trust when facing challenges both now and in the future.  The key priorities for me as a Governor include:

  • Improving the quality of the patient experience
  • Promoting ‘joined up’ health care between GPs, hospitals and other community health providers
  • Supporting NHS staff in their work and providing access to the resources they need to do their jobs successfully.
