Why do you want to be a governor?

Why do you want to be a governor? : After a working lifetime in the NHS in Dorset, and then spending most of the last 3 years organising volunteer marshals for the Coronavirus vaccination programme, whilst learning the ropes as an NHS governor during the pandemic, I feel that being a governor would give me the opportunity to serve the community and the organisation which means so much to me.

What skills do you feel you could bring to the role?

I have worked at many levels in the NHS, from receptionist to head of department, mostly in Dorset. For the last 25 years of my career, I worked with the dedicated staff of Dorset HealthCare to innovate and transform services to patients and to ensure that clinical staff had the information resources they needed, wherever they needed them.  My role required significant working with other Dorset NHS and local authority agencies. Dorset HealthCare supported me in gaining several post-graduate professional and technical qualifications which, I believe benefit the role of governor. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Health And Social Care Management, the Chartered Management Institute and the British Computer Society,  have a degree in Human Psychology, and an MBA. I believe that all of this, plus experience gained over the last 3 years as a governor during an extremely challenging time for the NHS and local people alike, will allow me to make a valid contribution to the role.
