Alan Walker

Background/experience

I have been employed at Dudley by Summit Healthcare for a relatively short time. However, I do bring to the group many years of transferable knowledge and experience as an Engineer and Facilities and Estates professional in both Healthcare and the private sector.

Part of my day job is to act as the PFI interface between the Trust and all the different facets of our service provider Interserve. This includes Maintenance, Catering, Cleaning, Security etc. I also represent Summit at several Trust Operational meetings.

I see part of my role of governor is to take the communication role a step further by ensuring a better understanding of the building, its capabilities and its infrastructure by all the building users and stakeholders.  Additionally I would like to improve the communications link between the Trust and all the facilities support staff at the Dudley Group.

Background/experience

Hello my name is Jenny Glynn. I’m a Speech and Language Therapist and I’ve worked in Dudley since I qualified in 1996. I was recently lucky enough to be elected Staff Governor for AHPs and HCSs and I feel very privileged to have been given this opportunity, thank you!

As a collective, our specialist clinical knowledge, skills and expertise is vital to achieve and deliver high quality patient care. It is not just about doctors and nurses. We all have an equally important part to play. We need a voice to promote the great services we deliver and to ensure our thoughts and opinions are heard and considered.

My passion is patient care. My thoughts, whether as a Manager or as a clinician are always to strive to achieve the very best for our patients. I will do my very best to use this opportunity to make a difference, to be the person to question, challenge, support and drive forwards the views and opinions of the staff I represent and the patients of Dudley.

I am extremely proud to be part of this wider group of professionals and I am committed to helping and supporting us all to achieve our potential, for this to be recognised and for it to result in the best possible patient care.

Constituency: Staff Elected Representing area: Non-Clinical Staff Email address: foundationmembers@dgh.nhs.uk Contact details: (01384) 321124

Background/experience

I have been the Fundraising Manager for the Dudley Group NHS Charity since January 2010.  I hold high the view that a patient’s positive experience can greatly affect their well being and recovery. My role puts me in a great position to be able to talk to members of the public about their experiences and to also liaise with staff with regards to any key issues they may have. As a Governor representing non-clinical staff I would use these skills to ensure we get the same opportunities to have our say. The non-clinical staff play such an important role for the smooth running of our Trust; ensuring we have a voice with regards to our roles is vital. I recognise the importance of not only listening to my colleagues views but equally of passing those views on to the appropriate people. Having influence can only be of use if you make an impact. I believe I am a friendly approachable ambassador for my
