Mr Brian Dorman

I was born in Dublin and received a Catholic education at a Christian Brothers school. I moved to England to pursue a career in nursing. I completed my nursing studies at the University of Hertfordshire. I also undertook a Diploma in Critical Care Nursing at University of Hertfordshire. I then went on to complete a Master of Science Degree in ‘Advancing Professional Healthcare Practice’ at Kings College, London.

My whole career has been in healthcare. I originally got a taste for this working as a hospital porter. After completing my nursing studies I pursued a career in Intensive Care nursing. I worked clinically for many years in Intensive Care Units in and around London, including Royal Free Hospital and Imperial College Healthcare Trust. I have been in senior nurse management for over 10 years and presently hold the position of Divisional Head of Nursing at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, managing Critical Care (adults and paediatrics), Operating Theatres, Pharmacy and a full range of support services. I am particularly interested in governance and provision of high quality care to all, especially in ensuring the right thing is done when things go wrong. I also have a deep rooted interest in quality improvement and research. I am very proud I was part of the leadership team which led our Trust from ‘Requires Improvement’ to ‘Good’ in our most recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) report in 2018.

I have a daughter at St Joseph’s and a son who will be starting in the future. The school structure and curriculum delivers a high standard of education. It is delivered with compassion, care with a deep underpinning of Christian and British values. I believe these to be the building blocks for our children to grow up to be successful, balanced and moral individuals. Despite the most recent Ofsted rating of ‘Requires Improvement’ I am confident that the school is on a path to move to the next level on the next inspection. I believe that I can make a positive contribution with my professional, personal and CQC experiences.

As school governor I am committed to maintaining the schools standards and values. Additionally, I participate and lead, when required, on any developments and activities which enhances the teaching and learning environment at St Joseph’s. I commit my time to attending all meetings, training or events that are required. I draw on my extensive healthcare and personal experience ensuring values are upheld and the children are safeguarded. As an individual if am committed to anything, I will give it my all. I am very proud to be part of the governor team at the school on its journey to ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’.
