Role: Partner Governor Sheffield CCG

I have been a Partner Governor at Sheffield Children’s since 2014 as part of Sheffield CCG. I have now been elected as a Public Governor for the Trust representing the Sheffield constituency.

I am passionate about the quality of health care for the children in our City and those in the wider area served by our specialist Children’s Trust. I am proud to have played a part in commissioning services for Sheffield Children ensuring that they get a great deal.

I have recently retired from clinical General Practice in Sheffield after 31 years.  I have enjoyed working with the excellent team at Sheffield Children’s and would like to champion more services based in the community and in partnership with schools to enable easier access for children, their families and those who care for them.

I can be contacted on and will do my best to represent the views of staff, parents, service users and young people.


Dr Nikki Bates has a special interest in the health of young people and students and has been a Partner Governor at Sheffield Children’s Hospital since 2014. She is keen to help develop services for Sheffield children and works with the Children’s and Young Peoples Portfolio within the CCG.

Nikki has been a GP for 26 years. She is Senior Partner at Porter Brook Medical Centre and Student Health at Sheffield Hallam University.

She is also a GP appraiser and in this role she helps GPs review their work, celebrate excellence and prepare for Revalidation with the General Medical Council. In 2014 she was elected by Sheffield GPs as one of their representatives to the Clinical Commissioning Group Governing Body.
