  • Peter Norris - Central Liverpool

    Reasons for becoming a Governor

    I wanted to become a Governor because I felt I could contribute by bringing an experienced and local viewpoint. I also believe that active local involvement is vital. Just like every prospective user of the services provided by the Women’s, I want the best for patients and staff. I want them to be happy, confident and feel significant. As members of the community we need to support the hospital, but when necessary we should also put it under tough scrutiny.

    Experience

    I have lived in Liverpool all my life and have worked for Royal Mail for more than 30 years. I am a trade union official, a member of the Labour Party and studied at the University of Liverpool. I feel these years of working and meeting ordinary people, will help me give them a voice in the workings of the hospital and the service it provides.

    Passionate about

    I am passionate about delivering promises and effective oversight. What is the point of not delivering for people? Broken promises destroy trust. Effective oversight ensures realistic goals.
