Rachel Koutsavakis

Staff Governor (Non-Clinical and Support)

Staff Governor for Non-Clinical and Support

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

I began my career within the NHS as a Nurse Bank Co-ordinator and Health Care Assistant in 2003, moving into Medical Education as an administrator in 2005.  After completing my degree, I gained my first management role.

In 2012, I enjoyed an employment break travelling the world, which taught me an inspiring lesson that anything, is possible. I returned to the NHS with an exciting ethos and a new perspective to overcome any challenge.

In my current role as Head of Education & Business Development at Wythenshawe Hospital, I provide support around the Education Services and I have also been involved in many Trust-wide Quality Assurance initiatives.

I’m a great believer in staff development, ensuring that everyone within the team gets an equal opportunity to contribute to improving our services. I am inspired by other people’s ideas and enjoy motivating colleagues and look forward to engaging with my fellow staff colleagues to ensure staff views and opinions are represented.
