Appointed as a public governor for the Trust in July 2018

Profile

I started my career within the payroll team here at, what was, Medway Health Authority in 1987. I have continued to work within Finance in local NHS organisations ever since, initially with the Kent & Medway Partnership NHS Trust and, more recently, with NHS Medway Clinical Commissioning Group. I returned ‘home’ to Medway Hospital in Spring 2017 when I was appointed to the role of Financial Systems Accountant.

Why I became a governor

I applied to become a staff governor as I believe it is important that every member of staff should be represented throughout our organisation. I am passionate about working in the NHS and I am delighted to be working in such an important part of the community.  This hospital can only continue to grow with the full support of the amazing people working here. I know that we all have a role to play in making Medway a place we are all proud to call ours, and I hope to be a voice for us all.

What I plan to achieve

Along with my staff governor colleagues, I hope to meet as many staff across the organisation as I can, listen to key issues and concerns and be their voice on the Council. I know how hard it is to work with limited resources, in buildings that are not ideal, and with equipment that may have seen better days but I also know that the most important assets at Medway are the wonderful staff. I, as part of the team,  will work hard to make a difference where I can whilst ensuring we continue to offer a first class service to our communities, our friends and colleagues and our families that rely so heavily on us in their times of need.
