Mrs Cathy Williams has been appointed as the new Chair of the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre Trustee Board, following the retirement of Dr Terry Wright. Dr Wright served on the Board for a number of years, taking the centre through a period of growth and expansion.
Mrs Williams is a long-standing trustee of the centre and is the first woman to be appointed as Chair of the centre’s Trustee Board since the charity was founded in 1985. A therapeutic radiographer by background, she worked in many roles at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre (MVCC) for the majority of her career including as General Manager and then Head of Radiation Services, before taking early retirement six years ago. She was at MVCC when Dr Strickland started the fundraising drive, which eventually led to Paul Strickland Scanner Centre. Her husband even did a parachute jump to raise funds for us.
Mrs Williams’s appointment as Chair comes as a number of new trustees have joined the centre’s Board: Mrs Shelley Heard, Mrs Joanne Murfitt, Ms Amy Page and Mrs Nimisha Jadeja were appointed earlier this year and bring with them extensive experience in healthcare management and leadership. All Paul Strickland Scanner Centre Board members give their time and expertise as unpaid volunteers.
