Lesley Hayes, Governor

Lesley Hayes I would embrace the opportunity to become a Staff Governor with enthusiasm to shape our services, represent colleagues’ views and make a positive difference by working together.

Skills I bring include: Speak Up Champion, Wellbeing Champion, Lead Ambassador, Patient Experience Champion and UHDB Team Forum member. These roles inter-link and enable influence so two-way communication and decision making takes place with maximum engagement.

I am passionate about improving health and wellbeing, putting people first to make our services the very best they can be for our patients. As someone with hidden disabilities, I can empathise and support colleagues both physically and mentally. I am a positive role model advocating dignity, civility, respect, honesty, inclusion and challenge discrimination.

The Bullying and Harassment group enables me to represent colleagues’ experiences, supporting the Trust commitment of how we behave to deliver Exceptional Care Together and be the Best Place to work. Supporting colleagues is key, nurturing development aligned with PRIDE objectives and Trust Vision and Values.

I have 17 years NHS experience where I lead the Digital Education and Training team. I am motivated by success striving for excellence with integrity and effective leadership skills. I have dynamic passion and energy and am able to motivate and inspire through change.

I have experience in facilitating training and coaching, strengthening skills to deliver more for less, including redesigning processes to deliver improved performance.
