Wendy Dutton

Chair, Service User & Carer Council

Brief Biography

Wendy is Chair of the Service User and Carer Council (SUCC) and a member of Trust Board. Wendy was a registered general nurse for 30 years, working in a variety of roles including Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

Wendy is a service user within both Mental Health and Physical Health services. This has led to Wendy being passionate about person centred care and a firm believer in treating people holistically; recognising that we don’t come in separate packages and need to be assessed and care formulated for all our care needs as far as is practicable.

Wendy uses her insight both as a service user and a nurse to see things from both a service user perspective and as a care giver, and how collaborative working can benefit all parties.
