George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust is delighted to welcome a new member to its Board of Directors.
Kath Kelly recently took up the post of Director of Operations, joining the Trust from Heart of England Foundation Trust where she occupied the same role.
Kath brings with her a wealth of experience from a number of senior nursing and management positions in a range of medical and surgical specialties. She also played a key role in helping Heart of England NHS Trust achieve Foundation Trust status, something the George Eliot hopes to achieve in the next couple of years.
Kath said: “I’m delighted to be joining the George Eliot and look forward to the challenges this role will bring. I pride myself on doing the ‘right thing’ for patients and staff and subscribe to a ‘can do’ style of leadership.
“I have a passion for improving the experiences of both patients and staff and am committed to the development of others.
“I am relishing the opportunity to work with my colleagues to move the Trust forward and eventually helping it to achieve its goal of becoming a Foundation Trust.”
