Rachel joined The Christie in 2003 starting in the charity and now looks after corporate services, public engagement and volunteers.

She is representative of the constituency as she works on many Trust-wide projects and is a member of the 2020 Vision staff forum.

She wants to contribute by being part of the council that scrutinises board actions, and to represent non-clinical staff who are often found behind the scenes, but without whom the Trust would not function.

As a primary school governor for ten years she believes this experience stood her in good stead for this role.
