Before coming to Cornwall Kate, a former registered nurse and mental health nurse, held several significant leadership roles including Director of Strategy, Partnerships and Reconfiguration at University Hospitals Leicester, Regional Director of Specialised Commissioning for NHS England and the National Head of Specialised Commissioning.
Chairwoman Mairi Mclean, whose own appointment was announced at the public Trust board meeting last week, said,
“The Trust Board is delighted to announce Kate’s appointment. The experience Kate has already gained from her time at RCHT, and the positive working relationships that have been established across the health and care system in Cornwall, provides much needed continuity and the opportunity to build on the progress that has been made with the Trust improving its CQC rating.
“We all aspire to providing the best acute and community care we can achieve; and to demonstrating our values by the way we treat everyone.”
