Public Governors - Nottingham City

Jenny Britten Jenny Britten - Lead Governor

Declaration of interest - no interest declared.

About me:

I was a practice manager with a background in psychology. I have a longstanding interest in mental health issues prompted by a family member's need and have a particular interest in removing stigma and rehabilitation. I was a governor before Foundation Trust status was achieved when I was able to learn and understand the role of Governor and something about Nottinghamshire Healthcare. At that time I chaired a communications working group aimed at improving communications between members and the Trust. I was also on the Governor group that helped shape and develop the Members' Council.

I can bring this experience, honesty, objectivity and some understanding of business to the role and hope that as a public Governor and part of the Council I can help promote the best possible service for patients, represent the members while understanding and scrutinising the Trust's operation.

About me:

I have been a member of the trust for 10 years.  My background is in both the NHS and the private sector where I worked as a R.G.N and also Nursing Home Manager

I have been a carer for my son for the past 18 years, Wayne has an enduring Mental Health illness. I have also been a service user myself. I feel I have a wide experience within the trust and hope to use this in my role as a Governor. I also hope to be more involved in the volunteering department.

About me:

I am a youth worker with experience of working with young people aged 11 to 25 across Nottingham City in the voluntary sector. I have a history of giving back to the local community through volunteering, organising and running events as well as consulting with young people around their needs.

I have ran awareness workshops around mental and physical health to challenge stigma and discrimination. I am also a Mind e-campaigner and on the Time to Change young people’s virtual panel committee.

I have a passion for empowering individuals to achieve goals they thought were not possible due to the obstacles they face whether this be a learning difference or a mental health condition.

I will bring my lived experience of mental health, knowledge of local voluntary and statutory youth services, holding the Trust to account and place the views of the constituents at the fore of all governor decisions.
