Sue Watts - Age UK

image of the governor

I am very pleased to be involved in the governance of Kettering General Hospital Foundation Trust at this time as it continues to make progress on caring for older people. For someone who is frail, vulnerable or has a dementia, who may be on the edge of his or her limits of coping at home in a familiar environment, and who is seeing the same people and doing the same things each day, the effect of going into hospital can be overwhelming.

Small considerations in how care is delivered can help to create a more positive hospital experience for individuals and for older people it is important that their care is shaped not just by their illness or frailty but also by the wider context of their life and relationships.

Sue has led a team of health and social care professionals working alongside community volunteers, to deliver a national Falls project and developed a successful relationship with a commercial healthcare provider which resulted in a substantial contract for Age UK Northamptonshire.
