I applied for the role because of the care my family and I have received from the NHS over the years, particularly at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals.”
“Now that I’m not working full-time, it’s a fantastic opportunity to do something new, give back and support my local community. I’ve already completed my Trust induction and spent time walking around St Peter’s Hospital and meeting members of the team. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in.”
Chairman Andy Field added: “We are delighted that Marcine has joined us and we’d like to warmly welcome her to the Trust. She brings a wealth of experience and I’m sure will be a very valuable addition to our Board, particularly as we look forward to the next five years with the launch of our new strategic objectives. It’s an exciting period of development at Ashford and St Peter’s and I feel we’ve got the right people on our Board, both executive and non-executive directors, to lead the way in fulfilling our vision.”
