I am delighted to have been elected to SCAS’ Council of Governors as a Public Governor and I thank those that voted for me in what will be my second term of office.
After a life time career in transport, latterly in the coach industry, I am now retired and have more time to dedicate to SCAS and Rowans Hospice, where I volunteer as a driver.
In my first term as a Public Governor, I attended several Governor training sessions as well as Council of Governors’ meetings and SCAS’ Board meetings in public. I have spent a day with an ambulance crew gaining firsthand knowledge as to how the service is delivered, which I found thoroughly insightful. I have also spent time in the Control Centre listening and observing staff handling emergency calls and 111 service, dispatching Ambulances when necessary.
As a Governor I am keen to encourage Hampshire constituents to become members of SCAS and to represent their views, helping to shape the way SCAS delivers its services, whilst upholding its vision and excellence, and enabling the public to receive the care that is expected from SCAS.
I intend to hold the Non-Executive Directors to account for the Trusts performance and look forward to attending to future Board meetings in public.
