Barry Canterford (Lead Governor)
"I am helping to fight against the stigma that service users experience"
As a Governor and Chair of The Council of Governors Engagement Group and as a former service user I have a unique experience of how HPFT works and the expectation of Service Users.
I have lived in Hertfordshire for 40 years, and, I, like the other residents, expect excellent mental health, dementia and learning disability Services. I am working to further enhance those services
As Governors we play a key role on behalf of service users, carers and members of HPFT and the general community of Hertfordshire in ensuring HPFT and the Board of Directors have good Governance and perform their duties well. I have worked with the Council of Governors and the Board of Directors on the service transformation programme and I have contributed to the Good to Great Strategy.
I am helping to fight against the stigma that service users experiencing the wider community and I am striving for parity of care for those with mental health issues.
