"I am proud to represent our staff"
I currently work as Out of Hours Clinical lead for Acute Services. Previously I served as Trust BME Network chairperson for a period of two years; and during that time I supported the agenda for Equality and Diversity matters in our organisation. My wish was to help the Trust overcome incidents of harassment and bullying and unfair disciplinary processes, and I believe that I supported my colleagues well who were affected by previous Trust Policies. Throughout my engagements in the organisation I have remained honest and open when addressing difficult issues; hence I am believer of our Trust Values.
HPFT recently received an Outstanding CQC rating due to the energy and enthusiasm of staff and the leadership that responds positively to the needs of our people. I have no doubt that we have a workforce fully dedicated to improving health outcomes for the population of our counties. Three years ago I was elected as the Staff Governor for Acute and Rehab Services; and I am proud to have been representing our staff. My focus in the Council of Governors (CoG) was to understand how our organisation works and understand where we are heading to as a Foundation Trust. I also wanted to familiarise myself with how decisions that affect workforce are being made. Now I have gained full understanding of our Foundation Trust objectives.
