Reason for becoming a Governor
My reason for becoming a Governor is to add to the democratic and governance process of the Trust. Governance is a big issue across corporate UK and insufficient checks and balances can cause damage, so I want to ensure that we as a Trust comply with all the relevant legislation.
The role of representing my colleagues in the decision making and governance process is one that makes me very proud.
Ensuring that all staff have representation and are part of the decision making process in the Trust. We have a lot of experience that can and should be used to ensure that the Trust remains a world class organisation proud of its contribution to society.
Knowledge of Liverpool Women's
A variety of processes exist in the Trust and one of my shortfalls is not having a deep understanding of all of these. I hope to expand my knowledge by meeting with a lot more staff and intend to raise the profile of governance around the Trust.
Along with the other staff governors we want to ensure that the requisite checks and balances are in operation as we transit into the new health economy.
So if you want to know what a Governor does then please give me a call or invite me to one of your team meetings.
I have had a varied career from being in HM Forces to managing part of the Albert Dock and thereafter the Royal Liver Building to developing the waste and cleaning strategy for Liverpool One.
This has given me a lot of experience as at every opportunity I have tried to develop myself be that through structured courses or going outside my role to gain experience and knowledge.
My role is currently split between here and Alder Hey but by using the available technology I can be contacted any time.
