Welcome to Janice Barber who has been appointed as a non-executive director at the Trust.

Non-executive directors are appointed by NHS Improvement for the skills and experience they can bring from ‘outside’ the organisation. The board is led by a non-executive chair.

She has experience in clinical negligence, professional discipline, NHS reorganisations and mergers, judicial reviews and public inquiries. Janice is a Trustee of the National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (NCEPOD) which undertakes in-depth reviews of clinical practice, publishing detailed reports designed to improve patient care.
