TWO senior figures within the Health Department are to leave their roles at the end of this month
The government has confirmed that Caroline Landon, director general for health, and chief nurse Rose Naylor have told Health Minister Karen Wilson that they intend to step down from their positions.
Government chief executive Suzanne Wylie said: ‘The roles of chief officer and chief nurse come with substantial responsibility.
‘Caroline, in her role as chief officer, navigated Health and Community Services through unprecedented challenges arising from the global Covid-19 pandemic and more recently the major incidents affecting our Island.
‘Rose, in her role as chief nurse, has provided professional leadership to nurses across the health system in Jersey, overseeing the expansion of the nursing education provision, including on-Island degrees and qualifications. This contribution changed career prospects of local students for the better, and this will be her legacy across 18 years of public service.’
The government added that no further comment until interim appointments are made would be provided as the departures relate ‘to individual employment matters’.
