Jason Holdcroft

Governor's Personal Statement

I have worked in the Trust since 2010 as a trainee and now as a Speciality Doctor in one of the Trust's busy inpatient wards and I've seen many changes in that time, some good and some not so good. I believe the Trust is working hard in very challenging times to provide the right services for the people of Derbyshire, and I would like to represent the voices of medical staff at a strategic level as we continue to develop and improve. As a long—serving BMA representative I have experience in gathering and expressing colleagues? views in some tricky negotiations, and believe I can do this as a Governor. The highest priority for our Trust is providing safe, compassionate care for patients, and we have to do this in an environment of ever decreasing resources. As a Staff Governor I would aim to provide a clinical perspective from the experience of doctors throughout the Trust to help us to decide where to put our resources and how to structure services.
