Chris Graham to focus on person-centred care
International charity Picker has appointed Chris Graham as its new CEO in a role that will see him focus on leading and promoting person-centred care.
He said: “I am delighted and honoured to be taking on the role of chief executive at Picker.
“This is an exciting time for the firm, as we have many opportunities to help organisations move beyond measurement to drive real improvements in people’s experiences.
“I look forward to working with the skilled, dedicated team at Picker to help the firm build on its existing reputation for excellence.”
Graham has been acting CEO since the retirement of Dr Andrew McCulloch and takes up his new post with immediate effect.
Chairman Stuart Bell said: “We have had the opportunity to work with Chris for many years in his role as director of research and policy, and more recently as acting CEO, and have been impressed by the leadership he has brought and his commitment to Picker’s values and our mission.
“We wish him every success in his new role and on behalf of the board, look forward to working with him to drive the charity’s vision of the highest care quality for all.”
