Roy has a degree in health economics and international health policy from the London School of Economics.

Dr Kathy McLean OBE, Chair, said: “This is a really exciting development for the Trust. I’m pleased that we have been able to develop this role, one where we can share our experience, but also draw upon the experience of the two successful candidates. We had very strong interest in the roles so it is a credit to both Pamela and Roy that they have been successful.

Xổ số Trà Vinh"Pamela and Roy will both bring significant experience of different industries and sectors to the Trust and I’m looking forward to seeing them make a positive contribution over the next year. Both Pamela and Roy joined their first meetings of the Board today and I’d like to formally welcome them to UHDB.”
