Constituency: Public, Leeds
elected to the Council of Governors
I am in the process of retiring from my full-time job as a managing director and replacing it with a few non-executive positions where I can make a contribution back into the local community in return for the benefits I have received over the years.
I made a conscious decision to focus on healthcare as this is an area which faces massive challenges. I was especially keen to join the Trust because I know from experience within my own family the devastating impact that mental health issues can have and the comparative lack of resources allocated to dealing with them.
My main aim during my time as governor is to ensure that as much of the available resource as possible is channeled towards improving the experience of service users and ensuring that both they and the local community have confidence in the ability of the Trust to make a positive difference.
