Progress, continuity and change at LOCSU

15 September 2016

Katrina VenerusLOCSU’s board has announced important changes to the organisation following its quarterly meeting today.

The Board heard that positive, early progress had been made towards delivering the targets in the Breakthrough Strategy following the embedding of the expanded commissioning team.

After four years leading LOCSU, Managing Director, Katrina Venerus, is to take up a new part-time role as Clinical Director. This change will allow her to fulfill her long-held ambition to complete an MSc in Healthcare Leadership as part of her professional development.

The LOCSU Board were very keen not to lose Katrina’s skills and experience and are pleased to have been able to agree with her that she will remain in a new three-day per week post.

LOCSU is today announcing plans to recruit a new Chief Officer to continue to drive through the ambitious targets in the Breakthrough Strategy to completion and into the next stages.

LOCSU Chairman, Alan Tinger, said: “I am delighted that Katrina will continue to be involved at the heart of LOCSU’s work in a senior role as its Clinical Director. As previously, she will continue to provide expert advice, guidance and leadership for key projects and sector-wide policy development and will continue to represent LOCSU externally and with partners including the Clinical Council for Eye Health Commissioning.

“I am very proud that LOCSU has gone from strength to strength under Katrina’s stewardship and that she is now recognised as a leader of and within the sector.”

Mr Tinger said that, in the meantime, no-one should notice any changes in LOCSU’s day-to-day support and service as Katrina will remain in her current role until the recruitment has been completed.
