Brian Toner

Public Governor


Brian is the Trust’s Lead Governor. He considers the Trust’s paramount goal is to deliver high quality health care, whilst responding to today’s economic demand.  Having twice been a patient at the Hospital, he had been hugely impressed by the professionalism of the staff and care he received and was happy to become a member and later a Governor, and give something back.  Brian believes that quality services are delivered by committed staff, supported by a strong governance foundation, including feedback from service users.  Equally, strategic direction needs to be developed through genuine stakeholder engagement and his experience as a patient, his health service background, work with charities and his involvement with the Care Quality Commission will enable him to make a positive contribution as a Governor to the Trust’s success and ongoing development.  Brian’s term of office will end on 12 May 2019.
