Governor's Personal Statement

This is Kevin’s second term as a governor representing South Derbyshire and he is looking forward to continuing to represent Trust members and the public on the Trust’s Council of Governors. Kevin has more than 20 years’ experience of representing residents of South Derbyshire within both the trade union movement and local government. As a governor, Kevin believes that this vitally important position requires vigilance to scrutinise decisions, hold the Non-Executive Directors to account and ultimately to keep Trust members informed and involved. During his first term of office, Kevin believed that the Council of Governors was instrumental in persuading the Trust Board to retain its independence when considering a proposed acquisition by another Trust. Kevin is passionate about the NHS and is a firm supporter and believer of a free NHS for all, and will continue to fight for its future and preservation for our children and their children to come.
