Carol now coaches, lectures and consults on organisation design, strategy, change management and leadership, applying psychology to enhance organisational effectiveness.
Carol said: "Community services play a key role in delivering effective, quality care for patients. I am looking forward very much to joining the board and contributing to the important work the Trust performs in providing services across London and beyond."
Pamela Chesters, Chairman of CLCH said: "I am delighted to welcome Carol to our Board of Directors. Her clinical training and considerable expertise in organisational development and change management will bring great insight to the board discussions on issues that are absolutely fundamental to our ability to deliver what our patients and commissioners require of us. The fact that Carol already understands the key challenges facing community healthcare, having previously served on another community health NHS Trust Board, means she will be able to make a contribution straight away."
