Lilian Bold

I've successfully been voted in to stand for a further three-year term as Governor. I feel I am well placed to assist Sussex Community with the challenges of the NHS ten year plan and integration of services.

I worked as a nurse at Horsham Hospital before retiring to become a carer for my mother. I've joined local patient carers groups and forums, and was elected to the Stewardship Group of West Sussex Local Health Involvement Network (LINKs) - the fore runner of Healthwatch West Sussex, becoming the LINKs liaison representative to the Trust.

My other roles have included:

  • West Sussex PCT Oversight Committee for the introduction of the North West Sussex Stroke Community Rehabilitation Team.
  • Joining as lay representative on NHS England South East Coast Stroke Clinical Network I have witness how patients and carers voices have helped transform stroke services.
  • As a union staff side representative I have supported NHS staff at local/regional/national level working on equality/workforce issues including equal pay,/work/life balance, Disability Discrimination Act, equality impact assessments and equality duties.
  • A lay member of the NHS Kent,/Surrey/Sussex Respiratory Group.
  • A patient representative for Park Surgery on the Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG Clinical Patient Reference Group and the Horsham Locality Patient Group.
  • A CCG representative on the MSK operational committee.
