  • 1 Comment

Trisha McAuley has been unveiled as one of two new members of Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS Board.

McAuley once worked at the board’s Stobhill Hospital and was a nurse for 14 years, rising to the level of sister, according to local press reports.

After her nursing career, Ms McAuley became a consumer policy and patients’ rights advisor and was latterly the senior director for Scotland of Consumer Futures, formerly Consumer Focus Scotland.

The other new board member is Donald Lyons, an old age psychiatrist and former chief executive of the Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland.

The appointments will be for four years and will run from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2018, according to a statement from Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS Board.  

They are part-time and have a remuneration of £8,008 for a time commitment of eight hours per week.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is the largest healthcare system in Scotland and one of the largest in the UK.

  • Those both sound good appointments for keeping patients and their voices at the centre of decision making. Well done NHS GG&C.
