Claire Molloy - Chief Executive
Claire commenced her role as Chief Executive in October 2017.
Claire has over 20 years’ experience in the NHS, working a variety of roles across different settings. For four years prior to her appointment, she was Chief Executive at Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust; which has many similarities to Pennine Care, as a provider of both community and mental health services across multiple boroughs.
Community and mental health care is a particular passion of Claire's, which was a major reason for her taking the role. The Trust offers something unique as a provider in Greater Manchester and this needs to benefit our patients and the wider health and social care system.
Claire's initial focus will be to spend some time looking over the strategy and providing a clear simple story about Pennine Care's future direction.
She is also a firm believer that if we properly look after staff, we will in turn provide the best possible care to patients. So a key aim for Claire is to make Pennine Care a great place to work and a place to be proud of.
Claire will also be spending some time getting to know Pennine Care's partners and external key stakeholders to build good relationships. This includes stakeholders within each of the six towns we serve, as well as at a Greater Manchester level.
