Thanks and a welcome to our End of Life Clinical Leads

14th December 2017

Dr Salt, a Consultant in Palliative Medicine and Medical Director of Trinity Hospital in Blackpool steps down from her role as our clinical lead in December 2017.

Susan recently presented at the End of Life Educators and Facilitators workshop in Preston on 9th November. The event was invaluable to professionals who provide End of Life Care training in Lancashire and South Cumbria, providing useful updates on current practices, along with a forum for discussion. Presentations on the day covered DNACPR and ReSPECT and also included a Webex from Health Education England on various e-learning packages that are available.

Welcome to Jayne Denney

We are delighted to announce and welcome Jayne Denney as Susan’s successor. Jayne is Clinical Nursing Lead for Palliative Care at Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and will replace Susan as our Lancashire and South Cumbria PEoLC clinical lead from 1st January 2018.

Both Kathy and I have found Susan’s support invaluable and we are really looking forward to working with Jayne who brings a wealth of knowledge to the role

Kath Davies, Quality Improvement Project Manager said:

“Both Kathy (Collins) and I have found Susan’s support invaluable and her cheerful personality makes her a pleasure to work with in what is a difficult yet important aspect of care.

“We are really looking forward to working with Jayne who brings a wealth of knowledge to the role.”
