Meet our Governors

Kevin McVeigh

Staff Governor

Term Expires: 2019

For the last 3 years I have represented the staff of South lakes and Furness as a Staff Governor.  The South of Cumbria is underrepresented within the Trust, and I believe I can add a strong voice to ensure that the potentially momentous changes ahead consider everybody. I have been a governor now for three years, and I am not afraid to challenge misconceptions and raise the voices of those affected by change. I am equally willing to listen and learn to share back to the staff who are concerned.

Mental health Services are my 'home' in terms of my day job, but I want to support all services in the locality and county wide. I am particularly interested in aspects of equality and diversity and how they impact on access to our services.

I have a passion for equality, diversity and inclusivity which means I aim to represent all voices. I understand how teams work on a day to day basis and how the data shown reflects aspects of this. I can help fellow governors understand some of the complexities we face through my understanding of the reporting.
