Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, which delivers services across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Bedfordshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Luton, has appointed new non-executive board directors.
Nicola Scrivings, Chair, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust said: “I am delighted to welcome Anna Gill OBE and Councillor Gary Tubb as Non Executive Directors on the Trust Board, both of whom have extensive business and health-related experience and will be an invaluable asset to the Trust.
“I also warmly welcome Judith Glashen who has joined our Board as an Associate Non Executive Director for 12 months on the national NExT Director Scheme which supports people from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities to become non-executive directors in the NHS.”
Commenting on her appointment, Anna said “It is an exciting time to join the Trust given the NHS Long Term Plan’s commitment to invest in community and primary care services. As a former nurse and the mother of a severely disabled young adult, I know the difference that high quality community services – such as those provided by the Trust’s staff - can make to families.”
Gary added: “I am delighted to join a Trust that is so clearly committed to improving the quality of people’s lives on a daily basis. As a Cabinet Member for Central Bedfordshire Council, I applaud the Trust’s commitment to working with partners to develop integrated health and social care services. I look forward to contributing to this ambitious programme of work.”
“I am thrilled to be able to contribute my skills and knowledge as a Registered Nurse, policy developer, and analyst in organisational and leadership development” said Judith. “Bringing the perspective of Black and Minority Ethnic people to the Board table will also help ensure decisions taken reflect the needs of the diverse communities the Trust serves.”
