Charlie Ladyman is leaving Healthwatch Croydon

Healthwatch Croydon, the local champion for health and social care, announces today that its Chief Executive, Charlie Ladyman will leave in November.

Charlie joined the organisation in April 2015, and has seen Healthwatch Croydon make great progress, but has decided the time is now right to move on. She is leaving on 17 November 2016.

Healthwatch Croydon Chair John Davey said: The Board very much appreciate the contribution Charlie has made since she joined us last year. She has driven our evidence-based approach with the creation of the Patient Experience Panel, outreach and specific research which has considerably enhanced our credibility. As a result she has been able to bring real influence to bear on local decision-makers on behalf of service users in Croydon. We wish her well in whatever she decides to do next.”

Charlie Ladyman said: “As Chief Executive of Healthwatch Croydon, I have been able to develop an organisation that is a wonderful platform for the patient voice, independently influencing local decision-making for better, innovative and cost effective services. It is now in a strong position to reflect the needs of a diverse Croydon community in an ever-changing health and social services environment. I wish the team and board all the best for the future.”
