Ruth Rogers - Merseyside Constituency
“I am passionate about the NHS and as a Governor would like to make sure that people continue to have a voice in the development and delivery of the LHCH services they use and care about. I moved to the Wirral in 2015 when I retired as both the Chief Executive of a charity providing social independence programmes for people with disabilities or disadvantage, and the first chair of Healthwatch Cambridgeshire. Like many people, my family has been affected by cardiac problems and I want to ensure local people continue to get the best possible care.”
