  • Sheila Phillips - Knowsley
    Reasons for becoming a Governor

    I feel that the thread which has run throughout my career is wanting to ‘make a difference’. I sincerely hope that the experience and knowledge I bring to the role may continue to that aim.
    In addition, knowing that I could be in a position to support the shaping of services based upon the needs of communities served is in itself a tremendous honour.

    Experience

    I trained as a nurse and health visitor on Merseyside working in both Liverpool and Knowsley. This experience enabled me to understand the barriers to accessing healthcare particularly in disadvantaged areas. Feeling I wanted to have a greater influence in this and other issues I became a middle then senior manager in Community / Primary Care service on Merseyside.  For 11 years I worked in Scotland, firstly as a Healthcare Management Consultant / Associate Lecturer at the University of Abertay, Dundee and later as a Senior Manager in NHS Tayside, Dundee, Scotland. Moving back to Merseyside several years ago I have worked as a Life Coach in my own business for 3 years, an experience which has greatly enhanced my listening, supporting and enabling skills.

    I am very passionate about supporting people at a community level particularly in relation to health inequalities and its impact upon women and children. I have found through my professional experience and other voluntary work I have undertaken eg the Samaritans and presently as a member of the A Team for BBC Radio Merseyside that disadvantage has a major impact upon an individual’s whole life experience. Making a very small contribution towards change in this direction has always been one of my personal objectives.
