Karen Kelland

Karen Kelland - "I am passionate about the quality and safety of healthcare which has patients at the heart of its service provision. My experiences as an ex-nurse, a patient and a carer have provided me with a holistic view of healthcare.  The importance of meaningful patient and carer perspective is ever more important in the complex structure, emerging from the many changes to our health services."

Sohail Ahmad

Sohail Ahmad - "I am passionate about quality of care and health and well-being initiatives in community. I can bring wide range of experience from third sector to support the work of Trust.

"My involvement in promoting health initiatives in the community can bring knowledge, experience and competency to support the work of the Trust and governing body."

Howard Bowden

Howard Bowden - "I’m an ardent supporter of our NHS and proud of its achievements in the 70 years since its founding. I would like to ensure that it remains free for all. 

"I strongly believe  that health promotions need to start at a young age and my work with the special needs team and being not only based in school but also community gives me a good insight into the health needs of our community."

Margaret Chadwick

Margaret Chadwick - "[Since retirement] I find that I miss the mental stimulation of work and also the social interaction of being with different people, so I am hoping that the role of governor will provide this whilst also giving me the chance to do something worthwhile.

"Having many years’ experience in senior management, I believe that I have good communication skills together with an ability to work as part of a team and can also be very self-motivated."
