Dorothy Burgess - Merseyside Constituency

"Since retiring from the NHS statutory (Mental Health) sector, I have maintained active interest and participation in the development of patient-led initiatives and services at Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital.  I believe LHCH worthy of the title, “Centre of Excellence”. The provision of healthcare is, however, an ever-changing model, and I would bring sincere and genuine motivation for the reputation of the Trust to be further improved and enhanced within the current very challenging boundaries of limited budgets and resources."
