UK clinical homecare provider Healthcare at Home has appointed Professor Sir Jonathan Asbridge as its clinical director.

His new appointment follows the recent departure of former clinical director Elaine Strachan-Hall.

Sir Jonathan is a former chief nurse of Barts and the London NHS Trust and former nursing director at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

He was also the inaugural president of the Nursing and Midwifery Council and deputy chair of the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence – now called the Professional Standards Authority.

Sir Jonathan said: “As the leader of our clinical directorate, which includes over 800 clinicians, I will ensure that what we do across Healthcare at Home is safe, high quality, innovative and professionally sound.

“We are striving to be the most customer-driven clinical homecare company in the world, by creating a culture of continual feedback and improvement within our organisation, with our NHS, private and pharmaceutical partners and, most importantly, with our patients,” he said.
