Reasons for becoming a Governor
I have a good relationship, communicate, and collaborate with the other members of the multi-disciplinary team. I am approachable and visible around the trust and believe that I would be a strong voice to represent our Midwifery Staff as a Governor. I would provide an open channel of communication ensuring that our Midwives are informed of decisions that would impact on their daily working life. I have always been hugely enthusiastic about Liverpool Women’s Hospitals and strive to positively promote it to the public at every opportunity.
I have worked for the NHS for 39 years. I trained as an RGN, RSCN at Alder Hey between 1983-1987 and qualified as a Midwife at Liverpool Maternity Hospital in 1989. In 2005 I completed a Diploma of Health at Edge Hill University and then gained the NIPE qualification in 2016 at LJMU. I have worked at Liverpool Women’s since it opened back in 1995. I have worked across all areas of the Maternity services, with my last ten years as a Community Midwife. I always endeavour to give the highest standards care to our families. I have a passion for supporting student and newly qualified midwives, Maternity support workers and medical students to develop their skills and knowledge, always encouraging them to provide safe care and a great experience for our families
I am immensely proud of the service we provide and keen to continue to develop for the families of Liverpool in the future.
