Peter Cheng is a Public Governor for North East Essex and Suffolk.
I have retired after forty years in mental health services, including clinical and senior management posts.
I have ten years’ experience as a publicly-elected Governor to local mental health services and served on the Recruitment and Remuneration Committee and the Strategic Transaction Committee.
Experience of the Governor role has taught me the importance of working with the Non-Executive Directors to hold the Executive team to account for local services.
I understand the role of Governor is an important conduit of communication between the public and the Trust Board.
