Director of Nursing Appointment

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 process. 

 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.
