Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Foundation NHS Trust has appointed a new deputy chief nurse with a background in infection control.
Sue Peckitt joins the trust from Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and said she was looking forward to more direct contact with patients.
“What attracted me to work for another trust was the patient contact I missed in my old job,” she said. “I missed the patients, which I think is the natural instinct of a nurse.”
The trust runs Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole hospitals.
An infection prevention and control nurse by background, Ms Peckitt said she was keen to ensure the hospitals achieved the highest standards of cleanliness.
“I aim to ensure care is delivered by a compassionate nursing team with high professional standards and, most importantly, that patients receive the excellent care they deserve when they come to one of our hospitals,” she added.
Her previous roles include deputy director of infection control at York Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and head of quality and deputy lead nurse at Scarborough and Rydale CCG and Hull CCG.
