My name is Pauline Constable, I have lived in Worthing for 31 years. I recently retired from the Education Department of West Sussex County Council, where I was responsible for children’s safeguarding, through children’s school attendance and exclusion. I have volunteered with The Citizens Advice service and I am a Governor at Davison High School for Girls.
I and my family have experience of the Hospitals’ services either as patients or carers. We have always had excellent care and I am keen to help ensure that the Trust retains its “Outstanding” status.
Working with children and families I have developed strong communication skills that I believe will enable me to make a contribution to the work of the Trust as it faces the challenges of the future and to represent the views of the community.
I would particularly want to focus on:
– Supporting the Trust in improving the health and wellbeing of our community
– Improving communications between the Trust and patients and carers
– Helping ensure that the Trust delivers the best possible services to the people of Worthing
– Hold senior managers to account for their decisions through active participation in the work of the Council of Governors and the Trust.
As part of my work I have had contact with care professionals across the NHS. I believe I have a wealth of experience to bring to the role of Trust Governor and to the Trust and Community.
