I am a partner governor nominated by the University of Cambridge.
A respiratory physician with an interest in lung cancer and interventional pulmonology, I work at the West Suffolk Hospital and Cambridge University Hospitals. I am respiratory lead and a member of the respiratory board of the Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System. I also hold an honorary consultant post at Royal Papworth Hospital, Cambridge.
A tutor and director of studies for the Cambridge graduate course, I am also external examiner for the graduate medicine course, Oxford.
Currently I am involved with higher medical training in respiratory medicine and serve on the specialist training committee.
Both my association with the University of Cambridge and as a fellow at Wolfson college, allows me to represent the university and offer an education and training perspective to the governor board. The West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is closely linked with the university through our junior and senior staff and the sharing of patients with Cambridge University Hospitals and Royal Papworth Hospital.
I bring my experience in all these areas to the Council of Governor discussions, oversight of our non-executive directors and the Trust Board, when seeking assurance for the safety and improvement of patient care.
