Leanne McLean joined us on Monday (20 March) as our interim Chief Nurse, providing cover during Maggie Davies’ planned leave of absence.
Leanne started her nursing career more than 38 years ago, specialising in cardiothoracic nursing for many years.
More recently, she was Chief Nurse at Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust with some time as a Deputy CEO. She also led the Dudley Group Foundation Trust’s vaccination programme for Covid-19.
Leanne’s passion is people and following a master’s in clinical leadership and a postgrad in education, Leanne advocates mentoring and coaching skills to help individuals grow and deliver ever improving services to patients.
She is committed to delivering high quality care, practice and workforce development, and education and workforce transformation.
Leanne is very much looking forward to meeting and working with as many staff as possible in her time at UHSussex.
