Lincolnshire’s NHS mental health trust is pleased to have appointed a new Non-Executive Director to its Board.

Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation NHS Trust’s (LPFT) Council of Governors has approved Ian Orrell to the position, which involves working with the other Non-Executive Directors to ensure the strategy, vision and values of the Trust are being delivered.

On his appointment to an initial three-year term, Mr Orrell said: "I'm delighted to have recently been appointed to the Trust's Board.

“I know the county well and the Trust has a strong reputation for the quality of its services.

“Everyone is aware of the challenges currently facing the NHS and I'm really keen to play my part in the Trust's ambitions to meet this challenge and continue to provide the services that people across Lincolnshire need."

Mr Orrell started in his new role at the beginning of August.

LPFT Chair, Kevin Lockyer added: “Ian’s skills and experience will complement the Board well, especially his professional financial qualification and audit experience.
