Professor Sandra Jowett has worked with the NHS for much of her career, through her research and strategic leadership roles in a range of public and private sector organisations.
She has worked in four universities and was, until December 2015, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Cumbria. Prior to this she was a director of the UK arm of a global research company, responsible for its public policy research.
For 15 years she led research teams at the National Foundation for Educational Research, undertaking largely government-commissioned work to inform service development and national policy in health and education.

Sandra was appointed as a Non-Executive Director in December 2014 and Senior Independent Director from 1 January 2017.
As Senior Independent Director, trust Governors and members, including staff, can raise concerns with Sandra if they have concerns, when contact through the normal channels of chairman, chief executive or finance director, has failed to resolve the issue or when it would not be suitable to go through those channels.
