Diane McKerracher
Chair

My role as Chair is to ensure the Board functions properly, that there is full participation during meetings, that all relevant matters are discussed and that effective decisions are made and carried out. To achieve this the Non-Exec team must offer support, guidance and challenge to the Executive Team as they strive to deliver their vision of providing excellent value and high quality care. The Chair role is both about offering advice and leadership and driving compliance, to ensure our obligations to stakeholders are understood and delivered. I also support the setting of the company's values and standards, so that together we can produce positive outcomes that make a difference for patients.

My previous experience in Healthcare includes the not for profit sector and the public sector, both NHS and Local Authority. In addition, I have held senior positions in the private sector, driving both clinical and commercial objectives. 

I currently hold a Non-executive appointment with a not for profit company providing outcome based psychological interventions for children and families. I also provide advisory services to various healthcare related organisations. 

I welcome the opportunity to directly influence and improve the quality of service to our local community and to do this we need the commitment of a skilled and motivated workforce and members council Ensuring the company achieves both of these is a key aspect of my role.
