I’ve written several times about the controversial record of Great Ormond Street Hospital Chief Executive Jane Collins, including the claims that mistakes were covered up and the stinging criticism of the hospital’s management by The Lancet.
Somewhat surprising news then from Marie Curie:
Marie Curie Cancer Care has appointed Dr Jane Collins as its new chief executive.
She will join the charity on September 1 from Great Ormond Street Hospital…
Commenting on Dr Collins’ appointment, chairman of Marie Curie’s trustees, John Varley, said: “We are delighted Jane is joining us. She brings with her a deep understanding of the NHS, the commissioning landscape and the work of academic and research institutions.”
The news is certainly good for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Given the great work Marie Curie does, one can only cross multiple apendages and hope it doesn’t turn up to be bad news for them.
