Ian Andrews

Constituency:Staff: Non-clinical
elected to the: Council of Governors

“I have been involved in NHS back office functions – procurement, informatics and IT – for nearly twenty years, and I am keen to use my appointment to represent the perspective of non-clinical Trust staff and to raise the profile of the non-clinical support and administration functions among our staff.

The events of the past year have brought home to us all the importance and value of mental health support in times of crisis, and the pressures on organisations such as ours that provide that support and many other equivalent services.

As someone who has had cause to lean on that support this year, I have become keenly aware of what a critical part of the community this service represents and I hope to be able to build on the Trust’s inclusive, positive and supportive staff culture.”
