David Pollitt

Public Governor

Term Expires: 2020

David Pollitt has been a Public Governor for Eden since October 2014.

David is really involved with the work we are doing for the Accessible Information Standard (AIS) and has also joined our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) representative group. He is a key part of the work we are doing and provides us with the important patient perspective we need he brings us an open and honest approach that we really value. 

David is also involved in the Learning Disability biannual audit programme visiting and auditing services aiming to improve access for people with learning disabilities and sharing best practise.

Dave wants to make a positive difference in the way that service users are treated. He has a lot of experience as a user of Trust services and believes that experience will help him to do a good and effective job as a Governor.

David is particularly interested in mental health and learning disabilities but is also interested in the experiences of all service users and how these can be improved including how doctors treat them, treatment in hospital and access to services and support. He is also interested in ‘aftercare' following hospital stays and the work of the crisis team and home treatment teams.

Davis has been a service user for a number of years and experienced the ups and downs of the service delivery. David uses his experience to help ensure that there are more ‘ups' than ‘downs' for everyone who uses the Trust's services in the future.
