Senior Level Speaker
York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust , Freedom to Speak Up Guardian
Lisa is a registered nurse with over 30 years healthcare experience as a clinician and a senior manager in a number of both commissioning and provider NHS organisations, as well as working in a clinical network across Yorkshire and Humber and a spell in the private sector.
Lisa was appointed to the joint positions of both the Freedom to Speak Up Guardian and the Guardian of Safe Working for YTHFT in September 2016. These roles give her unique insight into safety culture for all staff working in the Trust and an opportunity to engage with the junior doctor workforce on raising concerns.
She herself is a ‘whistle-blower’ which is where her commitment to changing the culture of staff being free and safe to speak up derives from.
