Background/experience

I have lived, worked, volunteered and raised four children in the Dudley Borough so I consider myself to have some knowledge and understanding of the needs and views of the people and their communities.

My working life started in the nursing profession but the majority of my professional career has been in social work and community development. I worked for many years for a leading children’s charity, managing services for children and their families.

Although I am now officially retired, I still work in the borough in a voluntary capacity mainly with Home-Start Dudley (an organisation supporting families with young children), Dudley’s adoption panel as well as being a school governor and working within the CVS.

Although this keeps me very busy I still find time for leisure activities and spending time with family, particularly my seven wonderful grandchildren.

Background/experience

I am delighted to represent Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council on the Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust Council of Governors. As a local Councillor, I represent the constituents of Upper Gornal and Woodsetton Ward, many of whom rely on the excellent clinical care and high quality services provided by the Trust.

As both a registered Nurse and an operational Paramedic with West Midlands Ambulance Service, I have the privilege of regularly working alongside some of the many dedicated staff within Dudley Group, I therefore value the opportunity to represent the Local Authority on the Council of Governors as it carries out its important roles including holding to account the Non-Executive Directors and ensuring the Trust remains one we can be proud of.

Background/experience

The population of Dudley is increasing in number, diversity and age and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Healthcare agencies in Dudley are charged with maintaining the health and wellbeing of this population. Everyone who works within the healthcare system and all the residents of the Dudley borough have a responsibility to ensure that the system works efficiently, so that those residents who need to use services can gain access to them in a timely manner and at an appropriate location. In order to provide this level of access to care I believe that we should all work in concert, healthcare workers shouldering their responsibilities to work together and service users to avoid imposing inappropriate demands upon the services and look to caring for themselves or them from the NHS, Dudley MBC Social Services and Dudley Voluntary Services.
