Ruth was elected as a patient governor from July 2016.
Her interests are improving verbal and non-verbal communication between medical staff and patients. Ruth has a passion in providing patients and carers with support and guidance when visiting the Trust.
As a patient governor, Ruth would like to be involved in organising health-related information which would be available in waiting rooms for patients to
access. Ruth continues to attend Addenbrooke’s Hospital as a patient (inpatient and outpatient) and is currently a representative for Breast Cancer Research Trials.
Ruth is self-motivated, enthusiastic and has an interest in helping others.
