Alastair Penman is the new Borough Director for Hillingdon Mental Health Services, having been the interim Borough Director since March.
Working alongside Clinical Director, Dr Mellisha Padayatchi and Bertha Matunge, Assistant Director of Nursing, Alastair will be responsible for all community and inpatient mental health services.
Vanessa Odlin, Managing Director of Goodall, CNWL’s largest Division, said, “Well done Alastair! You know our staff and Hillingdon very well and I know you will build a strong relationship with all our partners at the hospital, the Council and the Voluntary sector for the best patient care.”
Alastair, 51, said, ‘Teamwork and camaraderie has never been more important as we face the challenges of an ever growing workload.
“We will be working hard to create capacity within systems, building on our workforce and ensuring that the teams are well staffed. We look forward to continued development of our services, so they are of a standard we would be proud for our own loved ones to use’
He adds, “I am a proud Yorkshire man, moving for work in 2012. I live in North West Bucks with my partner and cat, and enjoy playing poker, getting the most out of the National Trust card, holidays and reading anything that isn’t too taxing.”
