Meet our Governors
Term Expires: 2019
Patricia was elected unopposed in September 2016 for a 3 year term.
I think I could make a valuable contribution to the Foundation Trust by being keen, interested and caring.
I spend a lot of time in hospitals both for myself and my husband so I have experience of both the patient and the helper side of things. Sometimes I have ideas which could make things easier for both sides. I also know the procedures of committees as I served on the Parish Council for 10 years, am on the P.C.C. at church, am treasurer for the Mother’s Union and the over 60’s & am on the village hall committee. I also owned the local Post Office for 10 years & did relief postmistress for a further 10 years. So I am used to discussing things with other people which I enjoy and think I can bring something to the governors. I acheived a degree in psychology with Open University in October 2017.
I am interested in what happens to the Mental Health departments. Also how the finances are divided. I come to the hospital every 5th week to take patients down to the chapel so I am used to talking to patients.
I meet a lot of different people in my social life so I could bring ideas of how people view hospital experiences. If I have any ideas I am capable of bringing them up in front of committees and I am quite good at listening to other people’s ideas.
