Angela Jones, trustee
Angela Jones is a proud Scouser with a 32 year background in education. Her final post was as an LEA advisor in Personal, Social and Health Education and she has always been a strong advocate for equality and diversity.
Following this, her involvement has been predominantly in the field of health. She was Chair of the Cardiothoracic Centre (now Liverpool Heart & Chest Foundation Trust) and in 2001 was appointed Chair of Alder Hey on the day of the publication of the Redfern Report on organ retention. During the following ten years, Angela worked at rebuilding relationships with families, staff and the wider community, often under the scrutiny of the media spotlight. It was in these early years that the concept of a new children’s hospital in the park began to form.
In 2009 Angela was awarded Outstanding Chair by the Northwest Leadership Academy. She is a Deputy Lieutenant of Merseyside, has an Honorary Doctorate in Science from Edge Hill University and was awarded an OBE for services to health in Liverpool.
Angela was a Samaritan for 13 years and chaired Brook Advisory Centre (sexual health for young people) for seven. She has Chaired Heart of Mersey (Public Health) and is a Trustee for several other charities. She is on the Board of Regents at Hope University.
On 23rd June 2016, Angela felt a sense of completion when she met the Queen at the official opening of the new build of ‘Alder Hey in the Park’
