In Southampton we are lucky to have two fantastic universities and a great student community. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to represent students, and young peoples, voice at higher levels of the trust. I have been a medical student at the University of Southampton for two years and it has been fantastic. The hospital and Trust are a big part of many student’s time here but likewise, students are a key part of the trust too. I look forward to reflecting this during my time as governor.

I am keen to bring a fresh perspective, with views from the next generation of healthcare providers and community members, thinking forward to help both sides prepare for the future in an evolving NHS. I am also particularly interested in support for students, from those on placements to those that are patients.
