Beverley Martin, Governor

Beverley Martin Governor Biography

Born and educated in Derby, a career teaching Biology, a commitment to public service and the NHS since 1960.

Returning to Derby in 1996, I became involved with Primary Care, Dental and GP surgeries, NHS Judging Panels, PPG’s, Patient Forums, HealthWatch and Derby Hospitals as an in-patient and volunteer.  Elected Governor in 2009, serving 7 years as Lead Governor until 2018.

2018-19 UHBFT governor. Re-elected to Derby in 2019.

I participate fully on many committees/steering groups, including Nutrition/Hydration, Energy/Carbon, Voluntary Services, Complaint reviews and Hospital Choir.

Meeting people personally within our five hospitals, communities and constituency is extremely important to gain their insight of the Trust.  I value visiting wards and departments, interacting and listening to the personal views of patients, public and staff which contributes to care and service improvement.
