Valerie Haylett, Governor

Valerie Haylett Governor Biography After 28 years of working in the Pulvertaft Hand Centre at Royal Derby Hospital, I retired as its Coordinator in 2015. My continuing interest in the work of the NHS lead to my becoming a Governor at UHDB in 2017. My considerable work-experience plus time as an in- and out- patient gives me the knowledge and confidence to represent patients at Board level. I greatly enjoy participating in many working groups in our 5 Hospitals. 

My main interests are within groups who work towards preventing patient falls and supporting our Dementia patients and their carers. I also manage the ongoing supply of TLC Teddies to Children’s A&E and wards, and have been instrumental in raising funds for the Dementia Team.
