Sheila Barnes

Sheila Barnes is a carer governor and the lead governor at Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust as well as a member of the NHS Providers governor policy board. Sheila has been a governor for eight years, a role she was inspired to take up to ensure the community had a voice in shaping local health services which respond to their needs.

Sheila has been involved in appointing the chief executive of her trust and has helped bring non-executive directors and governors closer together. The buddying system and culture of support at her trust has enabled governors who may have been nervous at first to flourish and gain confidence to participate. An active volunteer in her community, Sheila contributes her time and skills to a number of organisations, even participating in a sky dive to raise money for her local hospice.
