Inverclyde Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde have announced that their Corporate Director/Chief Officer for Inverclyde Health and Social Care Partnership, Brian Moore, is to retire.
Brian joined Inverclyde Council in 2011 and has been Director and Chief Officer of Inverclyde’s Health and Social Care Partnership since May 2012. Brian came to us with a wealth of experience in social work services in South Lanarkshire Council, and the former Strathclyde Regional Council.
Brian Moore said: “Through our established integrated working arrangements for delivering Health and Social Care services, Inverclyde Health and Social Care Partnership provides support to many individuals, families and communities in the Inverclyde area and I am particularly proud of these achievements.
“This progress has been enabled by the positive collaborative working between Inverclyde Council and Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board and other partners.
“I also want to acknowledge the commitment and support of Inverclyde Health and Social Care Partnership staff and I am confident that the organisation is well placed to build on its record of success and achievements”.
Inverclyde Council Chief Executive Aubrey Fawcett said: “Brian has been at the forefront of delivery of integrated health and social care services in Inverclyde which has been one of Inverclyde’s strongest areas of partnership working. Speaking as a colleague on the council’s Corporate Management Team for many years I can say that Brian helped to make sure that health and social care services were delivered with one thing at the forefront – the people of Inverclyde. When he retires next March, Brian will be sorely missed not just within the council and NHS but across the entire care sector for his knowledge and expertise, his good humour and calm demeanour.”
Robert Calderwood, Chief Executive, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde added: “I equally have enjoyed working with Brian in his role as Chief Officer. I have valued his leadership of developments within the Health and Social Care Partnership including his input to the Inverclyde Care Home and Health Centre Developments. Brian has also contributed to the Chief Executive and Chief Officers Group
I wish Brian a restful retirement”.
Mr Moore will leave his post at the end of March 2017. The recruitment process for a new Corporate Director/Chief Officer for Health and Social Care in Inverclyde is expected to be concluded by Spring 2017.
