Hello I´m Lynne Gibbons – Healthwatch Cumbria Board Member

Lynne’s professional work has always been in education; she has worked in several areas, varied contexts and at all levels, from English for adult immigrants in Newcastle via Secondary and Primary Foreign Languages to teacher training across a range of subjects and schools in Cumbria. This has required management skills in the development of both projects and people, from planning to evaluation and from coaching to assessment. In domestic life, Lynne is now the second of a four-generation family spread across five countries and so she is well aware of the health and welfare needs of the very elderly, the very young and the carers between, as well as seeing at first hand the differing ways in which those needs are answered. She has joined the Board of Healthwatch Cumbria hoping to use her experience in other areas to support all those needing or giving health and social care in Cumbria
