Yemisi Gibbons joined Croydon Health Services as Chair in January 2023. As a pharmacist, she brings over 20 years’ of NHS experience and a passion for ensuring clinical excellence for all patients.
She was previously a Non-Executive Director at both Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust and North East London Foundation Trust (NELFT) where she helped create and embed a patient safety culture, championed and advocated diversity and compassionate leadership in each Trust and created opportunities for both organisations to share best practice and work in collaboration.
In addition to her wide-ranging roles within the NHS, Yemisi is also Chair of a London-based domiciliary care company, bringing expert knowledge from her time in the independent sector.
Yemisi also sits on the Fitness to Practice committee of the General Pharmaceutical Council and previously served as a member of the Lord Chancellor’s advisory sub-committee for Central London.
Yemisi’s insight into the challenges facing the social care sector along with her extensive NHS experience brings a much-valued perspective to Croydon as the Trust continues in its ambitions to join up health and care and improve support for local residents.
