Healthcare trust makes two new appointments

First published in News

Dorset Healthcare says it has strengthened its leadership team with two new appointments.

The trust has welcomed Steve Hubbard as director of strategy and business development.

Steve, who has over 30 years of experience in health and social care services, will be responsible for developing and delivering the trust’s strategic objectives, helping its vision of personalised, integrated and local care become a reality.

Dorset Healthcare chief executive Ron Shields said: “I’m delighted to welcome Steve to this new role.”

Steve added: “I’m thrilled to be joining the trust at such an exciting time and I look forward to bringing together my NHS and independent sector experience to benefit staff and patients.”

He is the second new arrival after Nicola Plumb was appointed as director for organisational development and participation.

The trust is set to make further permanent appointments during the course of the summer.

Why is more admin staff needed, it's medical staff and nurses that are needed. Cut back on admin, reception staff and secretaries, then maybe we can have more medical staff to look after the sick and infirm

Dorset Boy is right. Like DCH, far too many directors and managers at high salaries. This is a failing trust and needs winding up.

I don't understand why the Trust is continuing to employ non-important staff where more hands-on is desperately needed in various sectors of care especially in the Mental Health area which I recently experienced and felt more was needed to help vulnerable people , we continue to get ignored , a great shame .
