I am proud to say that I have been an appointed governor to represent volunteers since March 2020.

I first became involved with the NHS volunteers in 2017 after retiring from a long teaching career. I was fortunate enough to gain a place on an NHS training course, to learn how to support mothers to breastfeed their babies. I then put my new-found knowledge into practice, working closely alongside a qualified health professional. It was an extremely rewarding and enjoyable role, but as Covid struck, close contact support activities ended, so I volunteered to become a coordinator for the Vaccine Programme at the Brighton Centre.

Now as an appointed governor, I work closely with the volunteer services, representing the views of volunteers at the Trust's Council of Governors.

I am also member of the membership engagement group, which endeavours to find ways to encourage the public to become members and to obtain public and member feedback.
