Appointed a Governor in June 2020 and Having lived in Amesbury for over 28 years and experiencing a great deal of what our hospital has to offer I feel that it is time to give something back, especially in the field of hospital/patient communication. Although I have no professional medical training; having served in the Military for 40 years throughout the UK and abroad, and been involved in many of my local community activities, I believe that I’m well aware of needs and concerns of the people I now represent. I am currently President of Amesbury branch of the Royal British Legion, a member of the Parochial Church Council, active in Youth, Community, and Church activities and particularly concerned about the well-being of the elderly and residents in our Care and Nursing Homes, the welfare of our Armed Forces, their families and our Veterans.
Our staff at Salisbury District Hospital have long been well regarded for the quality of care and treatment they provide for our patients and for their innovation, commitment and professionalism. This has been recognised in a wide range of achievements and it is reflected in our award of NHS Foundation Trust status. This is afforded to hospitals that provide the highest standards of care.
