Paula King

Public Governor (Rest of Greater Manchester)

Public Governor for Rest of Greater Manchester

I have worked as an NHS Mental Health Practitioner for over 20 years, in various roles across inpatient and community services.  I have gained a great understanding of the spectrum of care the NHS provides, as a member of NHS staff and also a patient.  Along the way, I have been privileged to contribute to service improvements for acutely ill patients and staff alike.

A strong advocate for the NHS, I am also aware of the limitations in the care system. As a Governor, I believe my 20 years’ experience can be put to good use.

As a patient, I have always been treated with dignity, care and respect.  I want to help ensure that all current and future patients continue to experience such good quality care from MFT.  I am also keen that the voice of patients, families, associates, carers, advocates and members is always included in the Trust’s plans.

Term of Office:  3 Years – Ending at 2021 Annual/Special Members’ Meeting
