We extend a warm Care Group welcome to Mary Marsh who joins the organisation as the 0-19 Clinical Director.
Mary's role is a six-month secondment from North East London Foundation Trust (NELFT). Over the next 6 months, she will work inclusively with all colleagues to strengthen the excellent work already provided within the 0-19 Service to ensure the highest quality and standard of care to Tower Hamlets residents.
Mary will be focusing on practice standardisation, digital transformation /blended pathways, role sustainability to include preparation for SCPHN apprenticeships and the 0-19 clinical effectiveness agenda, such as training, shared learning, clinical audit and research.
We asked Mary to share a few words about her career background, and she said: "Hello everyone. I would like to say a huge thank you for my lovely warm welcome to the wonderful GP Care Group. I am really very excited to back in Tower Hamlets after 17 years in my new role as Clinical Director 0-19, supporting the excellent work of the Health Visiting and School Nursing Service.
"A little bit about me...I hold a very strong clinical and leadership background, and affiliation to the East End of London. I trained at the Royal London Hospital and have worked locally across North East London in Acute Paediatric nursing, School Nursing, and Health Visiting roles. Since 1997, I have managed community services across a range of services - 0-19, Specialist Children, Safeguarding, LAC, MASH, as well as transformation roles. This involves working with strategic and corporate services, locally, regionally, and nationally, such as Public Health England and Institute of Health Visiting.
I do like to be as hands-on as I can, not only to support my own clinical credibility but I actually truly enjoy working with and helping people. Currently, I am working some weekend shifts in a local vaccination centre as a Clinical Assessor/vaccinator."
"I am one not to do things alone, so will be knocking all doors to support our ongoing very exciting journey."
