John Starkey (Lead Governor) - As a former volunteer for the Trust and carer for a family member who used many of Pennine Care’s services, I am passionate about the quality and range of services Pennine Care delivers. 

"I will bring enthusiasm, an open mind and a keen eye for detail and I will ensure Oldham has a Governor who is not afraid of challenging or asking difficult questions. I have always been very conscientious and active in the governor role and have made a real contribution to the Council of Governors."

Norma Bewley

"As a governor, I have been a member of recruitment panels including the CEO’s role, observed Board meetings, attended training and development sessions, have met staff and undertaken many visits to services in Oldham.

"I am a good listener and am able to consider complex issues and challenge decisions, whilst keeping the needs of local residents uppermost in my mind."
