The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust appoints new Chief Nurse, Gill Harris

  • Comment

One of the chief nursing officer for England’s most senior team has joined The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust as its chief nurse.

The trust, which runs North Manchester and Fairfield General Hospitals, The Royal Oldham Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary, has appointed Gill Harris to take charge of and lead its 4,000 nurses and midwives as well as its non-qualified nursing staff, across its hospital and community services.

Ms Harris, who is currently working as the chief nurse for NHS England, North of England, will start at the Trust on 1 April. She will take over from Mandie Sunderland who is leaving the Trust at the end of this month to move to a chief nurse post in Nottingham.

Ms Harris will assume responsibility for clinical governance, quality and patient safety, infection control and prevention, safeguarding, and patient experience.

She will also take forward the Trust’s new “3 Steps to Excellence” Nursing & Midwifery Strategy, which was launched last year.

Kimberly Salmon-Jamieson was named as the trust’s deputy chief nurse earlier this year. She was previously deputy chief nurse at University Hospital of South Manchester Foundation Trust (UHSM).
