WORKFORCE: Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Foundation Trust has appointed Tara Filby as chief nurse, it has announced.

Ms Filby, who has been working at the trust for 28 years, will take over the role after her predecessor Karen Dunderdale was made the trust’s deputy chief executive in July.

Following Ms Dunderdale’s promotion, Ms Filby had been carrying out the chief nurse role on an interim basis.

Ms Filby said: “I am absolutely delighted. My main priority has and always will be the quality of care we provide for our patients.

“We must ensure we wrap our services around the needs of the patients as they need to be at the heart of everything we do.”
