My Name is Ben McCay. I am chair of My Life My Choice.
I am also spokesperson for Learning Disability England.
I have been campaigning, with other organisations for people with a learning disability to be prioritised for the COVID vaccine. This have been successful nationally and people with learning disabilities have started to have the vaccine.
I like the phrase nothing about us without us.
I wanted to stand as a governor at Oxford Health so that people with a learning disability are represented, which has not happened before. I hope to make becoming a governor more accessible for people with any disability in the future.
I am excited now that I am Governor and I am looking forward to start working in my new role and getting a better understanding of how Oxford Health works.
