Kathy Elliott, Lead Governor and Stakeholder Governor, as Vice-Chair of Voluntary Action Camden, said:

“The Tavistock and Portman has been delivering mental health services to communities in Camden for decades, so it’s vitally important that our Council of Governors includes people from these communities. We particularly encourage past and present service users, and people from under-represented backgrounds, to apply and take on this rewarding role.”
