I was elected as a Patient Governor in July 2017 and re-elected in July 2021. I was elected as Lead Governor with effect from 1 October 2021. I am a member of the Strategy group and observe the Performance and Audit committees. As well as being a patient governor, I am also a member of several patient and public involvement panels, including the CUH PPI Panel, the Cancer Patient Partnership Group, the MyChart Stakeholder Group and I co-chair the Patient Advisory Group for the new Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital. I am keen to ensure that patients receive the best possible care and have a positive experience while in hospital, while ensuring the hospital runs efficiently and effectively.
