Dr Maureen Baker CBE has been appointed as a non-executive director to the board of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Dr Baker, who is the clinical director for patient safety at Health and Social Care Information Centre, joined the Trust this month. Her role with the Health and Social Care Information Centre involves her exploring the potential of using information technology systems to address known patient safety problems within the NHS. She also works part-time as a GP at a practice based in Lincoln and has worked in health care since 1981.
Trust chairman Rob Hughes, has welcomed Dr Baker to the Trust. He said: “Dr Baker’s appointment is great news for our Trust, as she has all the right credentials to help ensure we continue to maintain and improve our patient safety priorities. I am very pleased to welcome her to the Trust board of directors. We all look forward to working with her.”
Dr Baker has already identified some of the areas she will focus upon as part of her role. She said: “I would like to see our patients and visitors made more aware of the Trust’s strong focus on safety and quality priorities, so that they are clear on how well the Trust is doing from the moment they walk in to our hospitals in both Peterborough and Stamford.”
Dr Baker replaces Susan Grey who stood down from her role in January 2013 having completed two full terms as a non-executive director.
