Public Governor (Rest of Greater Manchester)

Public Governor for Rest of Greater Manchester

During lockdown NHS staff were described as ‘heroes’, and I cannot personally think of a better accolade to use.  As a parent of a child who needed healthcare, the stoic bravery, professionalism and smiles of the staff who provided my son’s care, absolutely blew me away and inspired me to become a Public Governor.

I am a qualified solicitor, who works in private practice as a commercial litigator specialising in complex commercial disputes.  I am presently in-house counsel for a leading insurance company, as well as the principal of a nationally known litigation funding company, providing access to justice to those who otherwise would not have been able to afford to litigate.  I feel that the work experiences that I have gained, alongside my analytical and communication skills, will help me to carry out my Governor role and actively engage and contribute to the NHS.

Elected                                 September 2021 (1st Term)

Term of Office:  3 Years – Ending at 2024 Annual Members’ Meeting
