Declarations of interest:
- Parent Governor for William Lilley Infant School, Stapleford
- Academic Staff at Nottingham Trent University, which is seeking to develop arrangements related to training and research with the Trust
- I oversee a programme of Clinical Research in the Trust, but hold no financial power in this regard
I am a clinical psychologist, and have worked with the Trust since first qualifying in 2007. Since that time, I have worked for various parts of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), most recently having helped to set up the new Eating Disorder Team. I now work primarily for Nottingham Trent University lecturing in the Department of Psychology, but maintain a clinical role in the Eating Disorder Team. I am passionate about the importance of supporting people at their times of most significant need, and I believe that the Trust is a wonderful vehicle for this to be done well; equally, I am passionate about the importance of our staff feeling competent, safe, and able to exercise their professional skills in meeting the varied needs of the community we serve.
Constituency - Clinical Support
Declaration of interest:
- Co-Chair Open Dialogue Nottingham community group service user/carers group
- Co-applicant on NIHR programme grant for five year RCT in NHS
I have been employed as a peer support worker for six years, working in inpatient and community teams. In 2011 I developed an interest in Open Dialogue, a family therapy based approach which has achieved remarkable outcomes for people in distress. I co-founded a group with a vision to explore how we could implement this locally. In partnership with the Trust we have held five conferences led by international leaders free of charge for over 480 members of the public and staff. As an associate lecturer at the University of Nottingham I teach nursing students dialogical ways of working. I believe passionately in a system that promotes and actively seeks the voice of staff and people who use services to collectively build upon what has been achieved so far. I have listened to staff comments and opinions over the years and I know the dedication and commitment my colleagues and peers have to deliver high quality care to the people and families we support. I feel very honoured to be considered for the position of staff Governor and represent my colleagues over the next two years. I bring a wide breadth of experience and common sense approach to issues faced by staff and the organisation. In the past I have worked for HMRC on a national project to support staff wellbeing on behalf of the chair recognising and celebrating achievements
