Governor Profile

Laura Winder

North Tyneside Hospital

Laura commenced her NHS career at the age of 18 and, although in the years that followed she also gained experience in a variety of other working environments, she always knew she would return to clinical practice in the longer term.

After stepping away to study for a degree in Modern Foreign Languages and teaching for a year in Madrid Laura felt her passion lay with patient care and working for the NHS. She completed a Nursing Masters at Northumbria University in 2015, and upon completion of this was awarded the Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust ‘Student Nurse of the Year’ award.

Laura’s current role is working as a Research Nurse within the Research and Development department. This has provided her with insight into clinical processes, as well as health improvement initiatives and developments in clinical care options. She is particularly keen and motivated to understand patient and public needs and priorities, and to help influence the strategic direction of our NHS Foundation Trust.
