Meet the Healthwatch Gloucestershire Steering Group

Bob Lloyd-Smith

Steering Group Chair

Bob had a career in journalism and news production in newspapers radio and television.  On leaving the BBC after 20 years he studied as a performance coach and obtained a university master’s degree in work psychology trying to figure out how and why people behave the way they do in the workplace.  He has worked with NHS England as a public/patient leader in Gloucestershire and for the past two years has worked with the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust as a Mental Health Act Manager covering Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.  Bob also volunteers with the Managing Memory team based at Charlton Lane Hospital in Cheltenham, assisting them in running their dementia awareness courses for service users and their carers.  “I see first hand much of the remarkable care provided by the health professionals and their support staff but also get to hear directly from service users about the care they receive.  To me, Healthwatch Gloucestershire offers a really user friendly and safe way of allowing those in need of Health and Social Care in the county to say what they think of the service they receive.”  Bob is a governor at a primary school in Cheltenham, he is on the management team of a local community association and has lived in Gloucestershire for 30 years.
