Retired nurse returns to trust to become hospital governor

  • Comment

A retired nurse has stepped forward to take a seat as a hospital public governor with Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

After 40 years as a registered nurse at the trust’s Scunthorpe Hospital, Beryl Allison has found herself in a new position.

She went up against three other candidates to secure one hospital public governor seat in North Lincolnshire.

She said: “I have gained a huge range of relevant knowledge, clinical and management skills, from my role as a staff nurse, ward manager and night sister in order to be a governor.

“I want to support and challenge the board of directors, in informed complex decisions, to ensure robust practices are put into place,” she said.

“I feel I am able to listen to people and voice their concerns and praise as an ambassador of the trust.

“Since retiring I have the time and commitment to fulfil this role and I am looking forward to getting started. I want to thank those that voted me into this position,” she added.
