Two nurses have been appointed to two newly-created senior roles by care provider Morris Care, which it said underpinned its strategy to lead the way in clinical excellence within the sector.
Lydia Tyanase has been promoted from nurse manager to clinical services manager to oversee the development of skillsets and practices required for working with clinical commissioning groups, in particular around the complex clinical care offered across the organisation’s six nursing homes.
Ms Tyanase, a registered nurse, joined the group in 2001 and has recently been leading work at the Morris Care Centre in Telford with Wrekin Care Commissioning Group.
Lindsey Marren, also a registered nurse, takes on the new role of operational support manager for care provider, where she will support home managers on issues ranging from compliance to quality.
Ms Marren joined in 2011 and has previously run two Morris nursing homes.

Sue Austin, chief operating officer at Morris Care, said: “The posts are a tangible demonstration of our commitment to remain at the vanguard of excellence in delivery of care.
“It is not a case of just keeping abreast of advances in clinical care but constantly developing our own caring philosophies and practices in line with medical advances,” she said.
Ms Austin also said the new appointments illustrated the company’s approach of “nurturing and rewarding” nursing talent from within the organisation.
The family-owned provider runs six carer homes in Staffordshire and one in Cheshire.
