Kenneth Lavery - Public Governor for Dorset/Rest of England & Wales

I believe that Foundation Trusts require strong local involvement if they are to respond to the challenges the NHS faces going forward I would like to help by bringing to the Trust governing body my expertise and experience from my career in hospital surgery. As a Lyme resident and member of the Health and Wellbeing group of Lyme Forward I believe I also can represent the members of the Trust as an elected governor.

As mentioned above I have many years experience in hospital and have been Medical Director of a leading Foundation Trust which was the in the top rank of Foundation Trusts country-wide. As Medical Director I was responsible for the clinical governance of all the Medical staff in the Trust as well as being the lead cancer surgeon for the Trust. Therefore with this background I believe I am well placed to assist the Board of Governors in their duty to hold the Trust Executive to account
