Sue Jacques, Chief Executive is delighted to be able to
announce that the Trust has appointed Noel Scanlon as Executive
Director of Nursing.
The announcement has been delayed by a few weeks due to
new NHS checks required for Board directors.
Noel Scanlon has been a registered nurse for over thirty
years and spent the last ten or so in senior nursing roles in the
NHS, including two Executive Director of Nursing positions and
Deputy Chief Executive in large acute secondary hospital
trusts. He has also spent three years in a senior nursing
role for the state health provider in Qatar.
Noel will be joining the Trust next week, and
will be spending his first four weeks on an in depth induction
Maureen Grieveson and Joanne Todd have agreed to continue
as acting Directors of Nursing during that period. Sue Jacques
would like to thank Maureen and Joanne for their support over the
last few weeks.
We all give Noel a great CDDFT welcome as he works his way
round the organisation.
'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient
ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
