Mary Turner

Constituency: Appointed

Background/experience

I have lived, worked, volunteered and raised four children in the Dudley Borough so I consider myself to have some knowledge and understanding of the needs and views of the people and their communities.

My working life started in the nursing profession but the majority of my professional career has been in social work and community development. I worked for many years for a leading children’s charity, managing services for children and their families.

Although I am now officially retired, I still work in the borough in a voluntary capacity mainly with Home-Start Dudley (an organisation supporting families with young children), Dudley’s adoption panel as well as being a school governor and working within the CVS.

Although this keeps me very busy I still find time for leisure activities and spending time with family, particularly my seven wonderful grandchildren.

Cllr Steve Waltho

Constituency: Appointed
Representing area: Dudley MBC
Email address: foundationmembers@dgh.nhs.uk
Contact details: (01384) 321124

Background/experience

The main reason as to why I joined the political system some 28 years ago was my support and love of the NHS. Since then I’ve campaigned tirelessly for extra investment, improvement and public openness. When the opportunity arose with the advent of Foundation Trusts for ordinary people to become involved in the Council of Governors structure I immediately put my name forward and was duly elected. I spent several years as a Public Elected Governor. My present term of office is as a nominated Governor from the Local Authority but my passion for the NHS remains undiminished.

Background/experience

The population of Dudley is increasing in number, diversity and age and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Healthcare agencies in Dudley are charged with maintaining the health and wellbeing of this population. Everyone who works within the healthcare system and all the residents of the Dudley borough have a responsibility to ensure that the system works efficiently, so that those residents who need to use services can gain access to them in a timely manner and at an appropriate location. In order to provide this level of access to care I believe that we should all work in concert, healthcare workers shouldering their responsibilities to work together and service users to avoid imposing inappropriate demands upon the services and look to caring for themselves or them from the NHS, Dudley MBC Social Services and Dudley Voluntary Services.
