Carole Woodman

Public Governor

Term Expires: 2019

Carole Woodman was elected in December 2018 for a one year term.

Carole is interested in improving the engagement between the Trust and members of the public; the integration of the Trusts, ensuring prevention and public health are prioritised and the health and wellbeing of young people, people with learning difficulties particularly with respect to mental health.

Carole was actively involved in the Success Regime, is a member of the West Cumbria Community forum and helped set up Cumbrian’s Voice for Heath Care. Carole set up Egremont Youth Partnership, an independent charity, with a specific session for young people with learning difficulties aged 16-30.

Carole has been a foster carer and has an adopted son with learning difficulties, Type 1 diabetes and a rare degenerative condition that has shown me the challenges of navigating the health care system across all the different specialities involved in his care.

Carole is on the Board of the National Centre for Remote & Rural Medicine (UCLAN).
