New appointment at LOCSU

9 October 2012

The Board of the LOC Support Unit (LOCSU) has announced that Katrina Venerus, previously Director of Operations and Commissioning, has been appointed as the first Managing Director of the Company with effect from 1st October 2012.

Welcoming the appointment, Alan Tinger, Chairman of LOCSU said:
“Katrina’s appointment reflects the development of LOCSU as an organisation and her outstanding work over the past two years to raise the profile of LOCSU with the NHS, the wider optical sector and particularly with the LOCs on whose behalf LOCSU operates.  Katrina has built an excellent reputation in supporting LOCs navigating through the challenges and opportunities posed by the NHS reforms.   Under Katrina’s management, LOCSU will continue to deliver the advice and expertise for which it is now highly regarded by the sector.

“I am delighted that LOCSU is now managerially and clinically led by someone who has a wealth of experience at every level – from having been a LOC member in the past to working with national organisations in order to make the case for enhanced services.   I look forward to continue working with Katrina in her new role."
