The change in the Executive team structure at Corporate Health that we have now put into effect is the culmination of a strategic review of the organisation initiated last Autumn, and reframing of our Charitable Objects, which have been accepted by the Charities Commission:
- To protect the physical and mental health of the working age population through providing support to employers and employees in the prevention of work related diseases and injury
- To provide high quality occupational health services to the benefit of employees (including those not currently in work) and employers
- To promote the development of occupational health services nationally through providing education and specialty training for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, and to promote research into Occupational Health
The Board of Trustees are grateful for the work Brett Edwards has undertaken as Managing Director of Corporate Health over these last two years or more, and wish him every success for the future. In leaving Corporate Health, in his message below Brett sets out the charity's journey so far and its future direction. In essence, we have refocused the charity on delivery of our Charitable Objects, and to this end have placed the Executive lead responsibility on Dr Nicola Cordell in addition to her role as Head of Clinical Services, given Tori Cunningham responsibility for ensuring excellence in delivery to customers as Head of Operations, with David Foster being recast as Head of Corporate Services to lead on all support functions.
From the former Managing Director of Corporate Health Ltd - Brett Edwards
"After a long search we have identified a very experienced Medical Director, Dr Nicola Cordell FFOM, who has excellent business and managerial as well as clinical skills, and who has a clear sense of what we are about as charity and shares our vision. She has been working on a fixed term basis for this last four months, and with her formal appointment by the Board, I am now able to step down, as we have long considered that the right Medical Director would be able to combine the clinical and executive leadership roles in Corporate Health, and indeed this is the model that we have followed for most of the last 67 years, since we were formed as a charity in 1947. In order to make clear that the Medical Director now has both executive and clinical leadership responsibilities, the title will now be Executive Lead and Head of Clinical Services.
At this point I would like to thank all of those employees, partners and customers who have supported the Charity as we have evolved; your support of the Charity has been inspirational and will continue to be one of the key elements of success as Corporate Health goes forward"
