Meet our Governors
Term Expires: 2020
I believe passionately in our national health service and want it preserved and nurtured in the challenging times ahead. I want to help make sure the NHS is there for the benefit of all, having seen first hand the problems people face if such an organisation is absent from their lives.
My interest are in all aspects of the Trusts work, possibly somewhat more in community health as that is where I spent my working life. However I think that by working as an integrated unit, so the various care groups are not viewed in isolation, then the vision and mission of the trust will be more likely to be achieved.
Having spent forty years as a community pharmacist, mostly in Allerdale, my working life brought me into contact with the public, which in turn gives me insight as to how people view their National Health Service, but also gave me opportunity to work alongside doctors, nurses and administrators within the service. Two years as Mayor of Aspatria, and periods as chairman of schools' governors means I feel I can work as a committee member.
