In her latest blog post, chief executive Julie Gillon has explained about the NHS graduate management trainee programme, as well as about her permanent appointment as chief executive.
“The morning involved presentations from myself as the keynote speaker discussing leadership in the NHS as well as previous alumni from the Graduate Management Training Scheme who gave an overview of their career journeys through the scheme and after. I am investing a great deal of time into this scheme as I see these people as the future leaders of the NHS. In addition, we need to capture the innovation and challenge that these graduates offer to ensure we think differently about how the NHS will look for the future.
“I have a student from the scheme coming to shadow me early in the New Year to get to know more about the Trust. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase the work that we have been doing to improve care and services for our patients and to demonstrate the great work undertaken by staff and the opportunities that working in an organisation such as this Trust offers.”
Appointment as Chief Executive
“I am delighted to be formally appointed chief executive for the Trust by the Chairman, Board of Directors and Council of Governors and to working with all staff in the future to make North Tees and Hartlepool a centre of excellence for the North East.
“Working with staff and patients in the wider system approach to health and social care is an exciting prospect. I remain passionate about the patients and communities we serve and what we can offer as an acute and community provider in the future. Our vision is clear – in our journey to outstanding – change is inevitable and we have to embrace uncertainty, whilst improving clinical outcomes and local access for our patients, in addition to transforming our services, improving the health and well-being of the population and valuing staff.”
