Vice Chairman: Lindsey Hayes RGN, RHV, PGCE (FE), MSc.
Throughout her career, Lindsey’s passion for improving health has been a driving force. Not only has it influenced her career path through community nursing, health visiting, counselling, teaching and training and management, but has been key to her commitment to working with and influencing to improve the health of the most disadvantaged groups in society.
Lindsey’s interest in people, through working with them in many different situations has led to a particular interest in individual, family and group behaviour, specifically related to health.
Until recently, Lindsey worked at the Royal College of Nursing where she had a leadership development role that involved working closely with RCN members on programmes that enabled them to influence strategically to improve health and patient care. Appointed as a Trustee to the 1930 Fund in 2010, Lindsey will be working with colleagues to contribute to and promote the work of the Fund.
