About the Trust

Allyson Stewart

Appointed Governor Voluntary Sector - South Tyneside

I am an appointed Governor with South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust and I am also Lead Governor.


I was appointed as a voluntary ans community sector representative, having spent 40 years in the voluntary sector in various capacities.  I have been a volunteer for forty years with a number of organisations and groups and I was Chief Executive of South Tyneside Council for Voluntary Service for 30 years.


I am now a writer, which gives me the freedom to be involved to a greater degree with the Trust and with a local charity, of which I am Secretary.


I am committed to playing my part in ensuring that our Trust is the best it can be and that all staff are supported to provide the safest and most patient-centered care possible.
