Edward Belsey

Governor for Mid Sussex

I was once an investment manager for a large US insurance company, running all its UK funds and pension funds. I was voted by my peer group as the best performing fund manager in the city.

This has taught me that excellence is the minimum standard acceptable. We must then try to improve.

What I like about Sussex Community is that it spans all of Sussex, is in every surgery and in the lives of so many patients, young and elderly alike.

A governor helps provide the checks and balances to the Board, holding it to account for the benefit of the patients.

As a message to prospective governors and all Sussex Community staff - do your best and be proud of the SCFT achievements. Enjoy the experience and keep up the effort!
