County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust (CDDFT) has appointed a new Non-Executive Driector to its Trust Board.

CDDFT Chairman, Professor Richard Scothon, said: "I am delighted to announce the appointment of David Jackson as a new Non-Executive Director to the CDDFT Trust Board. David brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our organisation, and we are confident that his contributions will greatly benefit our mission of providing safe, compassionate and joined-up care to our patients and local communities.

"Prior to joining the Board, David served as a Governor on the Council of Governors for the Trust.

"David has chaired the CDDFT Organ Donation Committee where his dedication to improving organ donation practices and his commitment to enhancing patient outcomes have been commendable.

"David has a distinguished career in the business sector. This experience will provide valuable insights as we navigate the ever-changing healthcare landscape alongside his own family-related perspective as David's wife has had a long standing career in radiography specialising in mammography.

"We believe that David's appointment will further strengthen our Board and we look forward to working together to continue delivering on our mission and vision."

Speaking about his new appointment David, added: "I am very much looking forwarding to taking on the Non-Executive role and the new challenge this will bring. The knowledge and experience I have gained as a Trust Governor will serve as a good foundation alongside my wider business expertise and I believe that I can support the Trust in achieving its priorities and goals going forward."

'I have to compliment everyone on their pleasant persona and their expertise and knowledge. By the end of the 5 days, I did not feel as though I had been in a hospital ward and was very relaxed.'
