Role: Public Governor - Sheffield

I was elected as a public governor for Sheffield in September 2019.

My bond with the Trust started in 1991 when in the space of two weeks I was diagnosed with Toxoplasmosis and then suffered an accident on my way home from school breaking my leg. I became a long term outpatient, the care I received was amazing and I’ve always vowed to give something back. I have volunteered and fundraised for the hospital’s charity since 2001 and became a charity ambassador back in 2012. I currently work for Sheffield Hallam University as a Commercial Manager supporting a number of business areas within our campus.

Having experienced the hospital from the perspective of a patient and more recently through the eyes of a worried parent I have developed an understanding of the challenges faced and a real passion for improving the patient journey. I’m really excited to support the trusts ambitious aims to continuously improve the service user experience.

I am happy to hear from staff, parents, service users and members of the public and will do my best to ensure your views are heard.
