Who we are

Hello. My name is Valerie Fabry. Here I am relaxing with our dog Ted.

I heard about the role of community ambassadors and wondered if this was for me. 

As it became clearer what the role involves I have become really proud to have signed up. It gives me opportunities to work alongside the Clinical Commissioning Group and their staff and partners. I am able to draw on a range of things I have in my own 'personal toolkit'. These include living locally, using local health and social care services, having a passionate commitment to involving patients and the public in managing their own health and working in partnership with those commissioning services so they can be designed and produced together.

I have a background in helping people adapt and change their behaviour to live what they see as a more satisfying and rewarding lives. So I am particularly interested in listening to what patients and the public and staff have to say.

I enjoy opportunities for creative thinking as well as valuing the importance of removing barriers to change. I am a clear thinker who loves to analyse. I also have a sense of humour and can be rather 'Ted Like' in my perseverance when chasing the ball or following an agenda!

At the moment I am involved with the Carers Action Group alongside other community ambassadors who have been or are carers themselves. I feel really privileged to join in the discussions as we consider the services that are available locally for carers. I was a carer for my parents for several years and know the feelings of loneliness and isolation you can experience.  By taking part in this group I can draw on these feelings and use this experience.
