Lynn Taylor - I have worked at SDH, both as an employee and as volunteer, the latter in A&E, the Hospice and spinal unit. I was employed in the IT department on the Help Desk and before that in various roles around the hospital as a bank worker in Plastics, Burns and other wards as ward clerk.

I have been a parish councillor for Chilmark for 10 years, and throughout my life have worked in organisations as a volunteer, e.g. at Great Ormond Street, as a Samaritan and representative of Victim Support on a police crime prevention panel.

Based on my experience in the NHS I feel I can bring an understanding of how patients and staff connect with each other and take part in the day to day aspects of the role of governor.
