STRUCTURE: Berkshire Healthcare has established a new management structure for its community services.

Board papers obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show that the new arrangement took effect on October 31.

“Locality directors” have been appointed to the county’s six localities, with “heads of service” reporting to them also in place, “with the exception of a head of adult services in Reading and a head of children and families services in West Berks”.

Dr Mark Allsopp was appointed senior clinical director, and two locality clinical director roles were filled, leaving four vacancies to be filled by the end of 2011.
