An Essex nurse has been appointed director of nursing and assistant director of commissioning by North East Essex PCT.

Wendy Tankard has spent 24 years nursing in the Colchester and Tendring area. She switched from hospital to community nursing in 1991.

Ms Tankard said: 'Part of my commissioning role will involve working on priorities for patients with long-term conditions and coming up with ways that will address their needs most effectively. I'll also be working with colleagues in service redesign, particularly around providing more services closer home, and reforming emergency care.'
