About the Trust
I am a retired lecturer and have lived in South Tyneside for 66 of my 68 years. Since retiring I have taken up several voluntary roles including that of Public Governor at South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust since 2015. As a STFT governor in addition to the governing Board meetings, I sit on several sub committees and participate in service area visits within the Trust.
Throughout my working life I was an active trade unionist and held several roles within the lecturer's union. I also served as a staff governor at the College and I served as a Councillor on South Tyneside Council for 9 years until 2012.
