Serco employee appointed lead governor at Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

12 January 2016

Serco employee, and Unison convenor, Terry Davies has been appointed as the Lead Foundation Governor for the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) Foundation Trust

Serco employee, and Unison convenor, Terry Davies has been appointed as the Lead Foundation Governor for the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) Foundation Trust. He is believed to be the first and only private sector employee to be given this important role within a Trust in NHS England & Wales.

Terry was selected following an election process among board members having previously served as a Governor for six years. As Lead Governor, he will now work closely with the Chairman and Non-Executive Directors to hold the NHS Trust Board accountable for high quality and safe patient care, as well as play a key role in communicating with government health watchdog, Monitor.

Terry has been in the NHS for over 25 years and has worked for Serco for 15 years ever since the hospital first opened in August 2001. In his current role as Unison convenor, Terry represents Unison members for Serco, volunteers and private contractors to maintain and improve the partnership between the Trust and Serco. In 2005, Terry was instrumental in negotiating ‘Agenda for Change’ Terms and Conditions for all front line staff at NNUH.

Commenting on his appointment, Terry Davies said: “I hope to lead the governors into a new era working alongside Mark Davies, Chief Executive of Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust, and the Executive Board. My vision is to achieve a unified workforce by improving staff engagement, utilising all of my many years of experience.”

Serco’s Contract Director, Nayab Haider added: “Terry is a credit to Serco; he successfully led the TUPE transfer of facilities staff when the hospital first opened 15 years ago and since then has been instrumental in the overall success of the contract by driving engagement between NHS and Serco staff to create a true partnership approach. I’m very proud that he can bring his experience to this important and challenging role on the board.”
