Nurse becomes mental health trust chief exec

  • 3 Comments

A nurse has been appointed as chief executive of a Blackburn foundation trust.

Karen Wilson has been announced as the new chief executive of Calderstones Partnership Foundation Trust, leaving Mersey Care Trust, where she had been executive director of nursing and care since 2006.

Before that she worked as executive director of nursing, service and professional development at Lancashire Care Foundation Trust for four years, and before that she held a variety of posts, including director of nursing and quality, at North Mersey Community Trust.

Ms Wilson qualified as a nurse in 1983, and as a registered mental nurse five years later.

Calderstones chairman, John Berry, said she had “an impressive record of achieving service improvements through partnership working.”

Ms Willson is due to take up her post on 3 May.

  • Yes congratulations. I should point out that Calderstones is a learning disabilities not mental health Trust
