  • Comment

A nurse with nearly 40 years’ experience in the NHS has joined the board of directors at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

Susan Cousland, 56, replaces Anne Shaw who recently took up the role of trust chair.

“She is bringing a wealth of experience with her”

Anne Shaw

She trained at the Grimsby School of Nursing and qualified in 1981. She then worked in a wide variety of clinical roles across the north of the country, before returning to Lincolnshire in 1997.

Ms Cousland has held a number of senior roles in Lincolnshire including chief nurse, director of operations and deputy chief executive at Lincolnshire community health services.

Throughout her time in management, she has remained on the register and practised in urgent and emergency care. She also currently sits on the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s registrant panel.
