​New non executive director joins our Board

We’ve been keen to strengthen our clinical representation at Board level so we’re delighted to announce the appointment of Michael Holland as a non executive director.

Michael is currently associate medical director, chief clinical information officer and consultant psychiatrist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. He has lead responsibility for quality improvement across the hospital.

As a consultant psychiatrist, he also works with cancer patients and their carers at clinics within Guy’s and St Thomas’ and King’s College hospitals.

He lectures in quality improvement in mental health both nationally and internationally and has published many reports and audit analyses since 1998. In 2008 he achieved an MBA from London Business School.

We welcome him on board.

At the same time two of our non executive directors have stepped down after coming to the end of their terms of office. We’d like to thank Nigel Goldie and Ian Hughes for their valuable contribution over the years.
