Times they are a changing… In the next few months, we will be saying goodbye to several well-known (and well-loved) faces. Bryan Davies, our General Manager for Planning and Performance is joining NHS Screening Services as Associate Director and Carolyn Wyllie, acting General Manager for Older People and Access, is moving to take up a Head of Service Role with Adult Services at Stirling and Clackmannanshire Councils.

And Melissa Goodbourn from the Integration Team is beginning a two-year secondment in the Transformation Team (Adults with Complex Needs).

Congratulations to all of them – I know they are all leaving big shoes to fill. Watch this space for more information on who will be joining us in these roles.
