About the Trust

James Hughes

Staff Governors - Non-Clinical

I would like to thank everyone who voted for me as non-clinical Staff Governor.

The Trust faces many challenges not least financial. Previous to my current role, I have worked in Operations Management / Customer Services and marketing, alongside my degree I hold a CIPD (Chartered Institute of Professional Development). Staff development and welfare has always been foremost in my mind, combine that with my last 7 years within the NHS, staff and primarily patient welfare has always got to be at the heart of what we do.

I was born in South Shields, it’s a great place to live and work, I’m passionate about our community services and having a District Hospital at the heart of that.  

I am very interested in your views, they are paramount, and why I was elected - to represent you and any views you may have.

You can contact me by email or by telephoning via Wheelchair Services Department.
