New Non-Executive Director to join Derbyshire Healthcare

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has today welcomed a new Non-Executive member to its Board of Directors.

Former housing director, Deborah Good, commences her role as Non-Executive Director with the Trust today, 1 March 2022. Deborah, who holds a BA and a Postgraduate Diploma in Housing, has spent most of her career in the social housing sector working to improve the quality of services for local communities.

Deborah has experience of serving on various multi-agency boards, including in her role as Executive Director of Customer Experience and Business Support at Solihull Community Housing and as Non-Executive Director at Derwent Living.

Deborah lives in Derbyshire and is a current Trustee of Artcore, a provider of visual arts to diverse communities across Derbyshire.

Deborah said: “I am honoured to have been appointed as a Non-Executive Director at Derbyshire Healthcare.

“I am keen to bring my experience within the housing sector, my passion for health and wellbeing and my qualities as a leader to help inform the work of the Board.”

In addition to attending Trust Board meetings, Deborah will be a member of the Finance and Performance Committee, overseeing all aspects of financial management and operational performance. She will also sit on the Audit and Risk Committee, which ensures that the Trust has an effective system of integrated governance, risk management and internal control.

Deborah replaces Dr Julia Tabreham who had been a Non-Executive Director at the Trust since September 2016 and retired from her role at the end of December last year.

Selina Ullah, Chair of Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said: “I am looking forward to welcoming Deborah to our Board of Directors. Her wealth of experience will bring an excellent perspective to the Board. It is with great pleasure that we introduce a new colleague who will support the work of the Trust in establishing ways to improve our services to those in the communities we serve.

“I would also like to say a collective thank you to Dr Julia Tabreham for her contribution to the Trust over recent years. We have hugely benefitted from Julia’s experience and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.”

Non-Executive Directors use their skills and experience to bring an independent perspective to the Board and to challenge the Executive Directors in decision-making and on the Trust’s strategy. Collectively they work as a Board to:

  • Formulate plans and strategy
  • Ensure accountability
  • Shape culture and capability
  • Commit to the highest standards of probity, integrity and governance
  • Ensure that the Board acts in best interests of patients and the public.

NHS Govenors seek to appoint Non-Executive Director’s with a mix of skills and experiences from a rnage of backgrounds who can understand the needs and priorities of their local communities.

The Trust’s Council of Governors approved Deborah’s appointment as a Non-Executive Director for a three-year term of office, ending in 2025.
