Hilary Carrick

Public Governor

Term Expires: 2020

Hilary Carrick was elected as a Public Governor for Eden on 1 October 2014.

Hilary serves on the Governors Advisory Committee and is a member of the Community Health Care Group Special Interest Group.

Hilary is a great supporter of the values of the NHS and is passionate about ensuring that people are able to access the services they need. She is very conscious of the current economic climate and the effect this is having on service delivery. As a new governor she has the opportunity to gain a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the work of the Trust, to influence its future direction and monitor and evaluate its performance.

As a scientist by training, Hilary is particularly interested in any opportunity to review and evaluate the systems and processes currently in place and to explore the possibilities for either introducing improvements or sharing good practice. It is crucial that the flexibility awarded to the Trust about how it delivers its services results in effective and efficient high quality healthcare for all.

Hilary does not have a detailed knowledge of the health service which allows her to bring a fresh pair of eyes to the work of the Trust.
