The South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust is delighted that its Acting Chairman Jonathan Patton has been appointed as Chair of the HSC Chairs’ Forum within the Northern Ireland Confederation for Health and Social Care.

Jonathan, who has been with the Trust for over five years and who has a career across the Private and Public Sectors says he is both excited and honoured at his new appointment which will commence on April 1st.

Jonathan added, “The South Eastern Trust has an ambitious “can do” attitude and I hope to bring this to my new role which I earnestly hope will help deliver better health care as we start to reshape our services which have been so badly impacted by the pandemic.”

“The HSC is all about people, valuing our staff and caring for patients. We must empower our staff to enable them to deliver the best type off care which the community we serve, deserves.”

Jonathan Patton paid tribute to the outgoing chair Peter McNaney and the Health Minister Robin Swann, whom he insists has shown “outstanding leadership” and compassion during the pandemic.
