Vanessa Cowle


"I am proud to have worked for the NHS throughout my career and HPFT as a Clinical Psychologist in Community Services since 2005"
I have worked in Adult Community Mental Health Services and currently I am in the PATH team working with those experiencing
first episode psychosis and their families. I have also undertaken a serious incident investigation and supported staff following unexpected deaths.
Additionally, I am the psychology representative on the Trust’s Involvement and Experience Group.
I therefore feel I understand the needs of service users and carers and can represent staff.

I am passionate about delivering excellent service outcomes for all service users, and good governance is crucial in ensuring this is achieved in a
fair, inclusive and efficient manner. Being a Staff Governor enables me to use my service delivery knowledge and passion for improving the lives of
service users to the benefit of HPFT more widely. Working with other Governors including Public Governors enables me to contribute to the diversity
of perspectives, and improve services and inclusiveness. In my role I seek to represent the interests of staff as a whole and the interests of the public.
The Council of Governors plays a vital role in holding the Non-Executive Directors to account for the performance of the Board.
I contribute to this by sharing my experience and ensuring that decisions adhere to our Trust values."
