At the General meeting held in February this year we agreed to the appointment of four non-executive directors of Urgent Health UK Ltd.
The purpose of the appointments is seen as fourfold;
- To narrow the gap between the small executive directors’ team and the wider membership thereby improving decision taking mechanisms.
- To provide a support function to the Chief Executive who is accountable for setting the organisation’s strategic direction.
- To improve organisational governance by increasing the number of directors of Urgent Health UK and providing independent oversight and constructive challenge
- To provide operational expertise to UHUK and its members.
I’m delighted to announce that we had four nominations for the four non-executive director positions and the following are therefore elected unopposed for a period of 3 years starting immediately;
Dr Fay Wilson (BADGER) Susan Blakemore (CHOC)
Tonia Culpin (LCW UCC) Dr Russell Muirhead (Shropdoc)
I would like to wish our four NEDs all the best in their new roles and I’m sure we’re all looking forward to working with them.
