Margaret Jackson - Public Governor - Dorset/Rest of England & Wales
Why do you want to be a governor?
I would be honoured to represent my constituency as its governor to the NHS Foundation Trust. I have spent 25 years in the healthcare industry, seeing things from different perspectives. I’ve worked with patients, physicians, and hospital groups. I’ve listened, communicated, and implemented action plans based on the needs of each group. I understand the challenges and believe I can make a difference as your governor.
What skills do you feel you could bring to the role?
For over 25 years, I’ve spent my time working in the healthcare industry. I’ve worked with several pharmaceutical companies working with patients, physicians and hospitals. I’ve delivered educational programs for both patients and physicians. I’ve assisted patients to get the care they needed, and was instrumental in bringing about improvements for patients’ benefit.
My experience includes working within the healthcare system in the United States, affording a unique perspective. In addition, I’ve been a caretaker of elderly patients. I’m sympathetic to the needs of both the patients and the caretakers.I would like the opportunity to utilize my experience and skills to help bring about improvement within our NHS.
