AN NHS Trust which pro­vides ser­vices across Mac­cles­field has ap­pointed a new chair­man.

The Cheshire and Wir­ral Part­ner­ship NHS Foun­da­tion Trust (CWP), which pro­vides men­tal health, learn­ing dis­abil­ity and sub­stance mis­use ser­vices to pa­tients across the bor­ough, as well as com­mu­nity ser­vices in Cheshire West, has ap­pointed Mike Maier as its chair fol­low­ing ap­proval of the Coun­cil of Gov­er­nors.

Mr Maier, who will take the reins in June, is cur­rently deputy chair for the Trust and has been a non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for five years.

He was suc­cess­ful fol­low­ing a ‘rig­or­ous se­lec­tion process’ which in­cluded a num­ber of stages with the in­volve­ment of peo­ple who ac­cess CWP ser­vices or care for some­one who does, along­side mem­bers of the Board and health pro­fes­sion­als.

Anna Ush­er­wood, lead gov­er­nor, said: “Mike is well-placed to lead CWP with his strong val­ues and a com­mit­ment to cham­pi­oning per­son­cen­tred care.

“He brings a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence to the Board with solid ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge of gov­er­nance and fi­nance and will play a piv­otal role in shap­ing care for lo­cal peo­ple.

“I would like to thank our cur­rent chair, David Eva, for his ma­jor con­tri­bu­tion to im­prov­ing the lives of peo­ple in Wir­ral and Cheshire dur­ing his 15 years with the Trust.

“We wish him well in his fu­ture role as chair at Lan­cashire Care NHS Foun­da­tion Trust.”
