Polly Rushton-Ray

Staff governor

Polly Rushton-Ray

I was elected as a staff governor in Summer 2021.

Prior to working at CUH, I was a colleague at CPFT in their Learning Disability/Psychiatry component. I am now working in Women’s and Children’s services as a Patient Flow Manager, with my previous roles being within Cancer Services.

I had both my children here and have had a close relative undergo care and treatment for a complex diagnosis. I am passionate about helping to bring new ideas to Addenbrookes and embracing cutting edge technologies which are hitting news headlines such as CAR-T therapy and the effect of Covid-19 on mental health and wellbeing.

Every step I take around our corridors and wards, I learn so much about and from our patients, it is paramount that we continue to support them in equally difficult and successful times. I believe that I play a small part in the machine that is the CUH family, welcoming, reassuring and believing in our patients to help them be their best selves.
