We’re pleased to welcome Jean George, who joins us on 8 November, as Interim Director of Local Services.
During this year-long contract, Jean will be putting in place a new management structure for our services in the boroughs of Ealing, Hounslow and Hammersmith & Fulham. She’ll be making changes in line with the Trust’s values, making sure that appropriate care pathways are developed for our patients, within the challenging context of today’s health economy.
Jean will be developing our plans collaboratively with clinicians and other internal and external stakeholders.
Jean has over thirty years of experience of working within the healthcare sector in both the UK and Europe. She spent fourteen years working within the commercial healthcare sector and her last seventeen years have been spent within the NHS working in board level positions, including six years as a deputy chief executive.
Chief Executive Peter Cubbon says: “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to appoint someone of such high calibre to this crucial role within our leadership team. Not only has Jean held a broad-ranging portfolio at executive director level, but she also has a proven track record in delivering organisational change and service integration within difficult financial environments.”
