Yvonne has worked at YDH for 26 years in various nursing and management roles and her current role as Head of Resilience gives her contact with staff across YDH and in the wider health community.

She is passionate about recognising the contribution that everyone across the Trust makes to providing high quality, patient-centred care.

Yvonne seeks to be an enthusiastic and proactive staff governor representing and encouraging staff views in the shaping of the Trust during both challenging and exciting changes ahead. Governors need to be involved in driving YDH forward to benefit both staff and patients.
