Camden and Islington NHS Trust Chair, Leisha Fullick, said: “It’s wonderful to be finally welcoming Angela to the Trust and we are all very excited about her plans for our future.”
One of her key aims will be to further embed the Trust’s new Clinical Strategy across the organisation. The Clinical Strategy launched last month aims to treat the whole person, rather than solely the mental health condition. It is a recovery-orientated services looking at an individual needs in order to help people reach their potential. The aim is to provide services that are accessible, person-centred and responsive to the often complex needs of the person.
