The Council of Governors guide the Trust when making decisions that affect our staff and service users.

We had vacancies for external Governors representing our members in Camden, and our members in the Rest of London. For the first time, we also welcome a Staff Governor representing our education and training work.

The following candidates ran unopposed:

  • Dr Maz Afridi is the new public governor representing members in Camden
  • Simon Yu Tan is the new public governor representing members in the Rest of London
  • Simon Carrington is the new staff governor representing education and training

You can read full profiles of Maz, Simon, and Simon from on our Council of Governors page.

John Carrier, governor representing Camden, was also re-elected for a second term.

Paul Jenkins, Chief Executive of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust said:

“We are in the fortunate position of always having wonderful candidates step forward for our council, and this year is no different. My warm congratulations go to the newly elected governors Dr Maz Afridi, Simon Yu Tan, and Simon Carrington, and also to John Carrier on his re-election.

“Alongside our Trust Chair Paul Burstow, I look forward to working closely with our new and returning governors to continue to do the best for our patients and staff.”
