Trust appoints new independent Non-Executive Director

21 December 2017

South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) is pleased to announce the appointment of a new independent Non-Executive Director.

Tricia McGregor, from Epsom, Surrey, will initially serve a three-year term from 1 January 2018 and fills a vacant clinical specialism post.

Tricia is a speech and language therapist and a visiting professor in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Surrey.

She is also an experienced board-level leader with some 30 years’ experience in the healthcare, social enterprise and employee-owned sectors.

Tricia also serves as a Non-Executive Director for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) and was awarded an MBE in 2011 for services to social enterprise, while serving as Managing Director for CSH Surrey (formerly Central Surrey Health).

SECAmb’s Nominations Committee recommended that the Trust’s Council of Governors make the appointment following a decision by an interview panel consisting of three governors.

A focus group also met with each candidate and candidates were asked to lead a discussion relevant to their NED specialism.

SECAmb Chairman Richard Foster said: “I am delighted that Tricia is joining the board and I am sure her background and expertise will ensure she makes a strong contribution as we continue to move forward. On behalf of everyone at SECAmb I welcome her and look forward to working closely with her very soon.”

Tricia said: “I’m really pleased to join SECAmb. I’m looking forward to working with patients, staff, volunteers and the Board so that SECAmb can continue to improve and deliver the very best care.”
