Bolton hospital gets BBC boss on board
ROYAL Bolton Hospital has appointed BBC boss Mark Harrison as its new non- executive director.
Wilmslow-based Mr Harrison will take over in April from current non-executive director of four years Roger McMullen, who is retiring.
Mr Harrison will leave his current role as BBC controller of production north and stand down as a member of ‘Digital Production Partnership’ to join the Royal Bolton Hospital.
The father-of-four has a particular interest in the development of the health services to women and children. On being elected to his new role, he said: “I would very much like the opportunity to use my skills to give something back to the local community.
“This role will allow me to use my business experience to help the Foundation Trust improve the services it delivers to patients at a particularly challenging and important time.”
Mr Harrison has extensive experience in board level roles including large scale change, technology and efficiency programmes, as well as shaping and delivering output services to the public.
Cliff Morris, chairman of the hospital’s board of directors, said: “This is a very exciting appointment. Mark has extensive experience at very high levels and I’m delighted that he is going to use that with us on behalf of our patients and staff.
“I would also like to thank Roger McMullan for the sterling service he has given to the Trust over the past four years.”
