Meet our Governors - Scarborough

Richard Thompson

Richard is retired and now feels he has more time to commit to being a Public Governor. He stated the role is valuable, rewarding and is part of the essential business of providing, effective, sustainable care and even more demanding services for patients within our community.

Totally mindful of complying to NHSI’s criteria, having served over 9 years as a Public Governor to my local Mental Health NHS Trust in the past, he finds it important that comments, feedback and requests from service users in the Constituency are relayed to the Trust to be actioned in a positive manner.

Over 40 years of Local Government involvement, National Park and 15 years with the Ambulance Service has given him a wide experience and knowledge of both clinical and mental health challenges on a day to day basis affecting our vast Constituency/Trust area.

Richard relishes the challenge and opportunity of being a Public Governor at the Trust.
