WORKFORCE: Ian Currell has been appointed as Cluster Director of Finance and will take up his post during April 2012.

The chief executive report by Mike Potts says: “Ian has a wealth of experience in senior finance and management positions, most recently at NHS Tameside & Glossop.

He was also Deputy Director of Finance for several years at Calderdale & Huddersfield Foundation Trust and in the late 1990s at Wakefield Health Authority. I am sure you will join me in making Ian very welcome.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Interim Director of Finance, Jonathan Molyneux. Overseeing the finances for three separate organisations is no mean feat, but Jonathan has kept a tight hand on the reins and is steering us safely towards year end.”
