Janet Heron

Public Governor (Manchester)

Public Governor for Manchester Constituency

Term of Office: 2 Years – Ending at 2019 Annual/Special Members’ Meeting

I’ve lived in Manchester all my adult life and became a Governor to make a positive contribution to the NHS.  I believe in an NHS which remains free for patients and in public rather than private ownership.

Practical experience as a former Trust Governor, including training, regular participation in meetings and contributing to the Governors’ scrutiny of the merger process has been very valuable.  I’ve learned a lot about our hospitals, their amazing staff and the wider NHS.

I have managed a number of large scale regeneration projects on behalf of local government and believe this experience can help me contribute as a Governor to meeting the challenges facing Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.

My priorities include:

  • Helping to ensure that the merger delivers improvements in quality of care and patient experience
  • Promoting ‘joined up’ health care
  • Supporting NHS staff in their work and providing access to the resources they need to do their jobs successfully.
