Recruitment for New Director of Nursing, Therapies and Quality

October 11, 2023

Following the recent announcement that our Director of Nursing, Therapies and Quality John Trevains is to leave the Trust, recruitment has now begun to find a replacement.

In early September, John shared the news that he had ‘taken the very difficult decision’ to leave.

He added: “It’s been a real privilege to have served in my role since our merger in October 2019, and prior to that to be Director of Nursing with 2gether. However, it’s now time for me to seek other opportunities and new experiences.

“I will remain in my role for some time yet to ensure a smooth handover with my successor. I will have plenty of time to say my goodbyes, and my main focus will remain on maintaining and enhancing the quality of our services which is always my top priority, along with supporting my colleagues.”

Our Chief Executive, Douglas Blair, said: “I’d like to thank John for his huge contribution not only to our Trust but also to the NHS in Gloucestershire. I know he will remain fully committed to our colleagues and the people we serve in the months to come.”

We have engaged recruitment consultancy Finegreen to seek John’s replacement. Details here:
