Helen Eggleton (NHS Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group)

Helen EggletonI am the Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group nominated representative to the Council of Governors. In the early 1990s, I trained as a therapy radiographer at The Royal Marsden Hospital.

With the exception of a couple of years working in health in Australia, I have had a variety of both clinical and managerial roles within the NHS. These roles have all included an emphasis on service development, quality improvement and the experiences for patient/relatives using local health care services.

Since 2013, I have been in the role of a quality manager for a CCG, working with many local healthcare providers including University Southampton Hospital. 

I hope this role will provide additional opportunities to work with the Trust to strive to ensure all patients receive the best possible care and experience from the hospital’s services they may need to use now and in the future.

Mandy Fader 2Professor Mandy Fader (University of Southampton)

University Hospital Southampton is an enormously important partner for the University of Southampton. Not only do we have thousands of student and staff stakeholders but we also work together on the education and development of healthcare professionals and in driving forward world-leading research and innovation. As Associate Vice President for Strategic Major Projects I am a University Executive Board member and am responsible for leading on the portfolio of strategic projects including those in partnership with UHS. Previously Head of School for Health Sciences I have lead on professional education of nurses, midwives, podiatrists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and cardiac physiologists and managed the School’s global research portfolio into Active Living, Workforce, Complex and Fundamental Care. I also bring my experience as a Professor of Nursing in Bladder and Bowel Management and involvement as a trustee and board member of national and international committees such as the International Continence Society. I am looking forward to actively increasing our engagement with UHS for the benefit of all.

Professor Julie Hall (Solent University)

Solent University Prof HallI am a huge supporter of the NHS and as deputy vice chancellor at Solent University Southampton I have led on creating new nursing and apprenticeship opportunities. As an experienced governor and trustee, I am proud to join the Council of Governors and look forward to representing patients, service users, staff and other stakeholders.

As a sociologist and Professor of Higher Education, I am particularly interested in leadership, professional development and training. I have led on several national projects to ensure universities work in partnership with students on changes to teaching and I believe there are parallels with a patient centred approach to health care provision.

I have always appreciated living and working  in a diverse and multicultural context, starting my teaching career in Tooting in South London and living in Brixton for many years with my husband and three children, while lecturing in London before moving to St Denys, Southampton when I became deputy vice chancellor at Solent.

In my day job I have ultimate responsibility for the student experience, for research and for the quality of the courses the university provides. I will bring my experience of strategic leadership and change management to the Council. I also chair the Southampton Co-operative Learning Trust that brings together several secondary and primary schools across the city and I sit on the Solent LEP Skills Advisory panel, representing higher education providers.
