April Saunders

Governor's Personal Statement

I am passionate about recovery; to enable and empower patients to take control of their life and wellbeing. I would like to make positive changes for the people I cares for and the team I work within, through my role as a staff governor. I am an experienced Senior Occupational Therapist working in the community in North Derbyshire, based at the Hartington Unit. Governors have a very important role to play in the running of the foundation trust and have been actively involved in continuing to improve the quality of services we offer. Governors are also involved in the recruitment of new members of staff and were part of the team which developed our Trust Values - to which all members of staff must work.
