Appointed as a public governor for the Trust in October 2015 and Lead Governor in July 2019.


Prior to my retirement in December 2013, I worked for a leading global technology company, supplying the automotive and commercial vehicle markets, now headquartered in Gillingham. During my whole working career with this business, I held a number of engineering and management positions. I have experience in high precision Manufacturing Engineering, Project and Programme Management, Quality Systems, Customer Audits and Change Management.
I have always lived in the Medway Towns, apart from some overseas expatriate assignments, in Spain, Romania and India. I have also served in a voluntary capacity as a charity trustee both locally and nationally

Why I became a governor

Having been a recent patient in Medway Maritime Hospital, I experienced firsthand the care and dedication of the staff team despite the present difficulties. As a governor I will have the privilege to serve the Trust and local community by contributing to bring about the needed changes, improvements and stability. I believe my past career experience equips me to do this.

What I plan to achieve

As part of the team, to support the Trust’s development to provide world class quality treatment and care to all patients. To promote the Trust within the local community, that patients may have confidence in Medway Maritime Hospital.
