New board members 

Lilian Macer and Anne Armstrong  

Lanarkshire NHS Board welcomed its two newest members Lilian Macer and Anne Armstrong recently.
New employee director Lilian, takes over from Hugh Sweeney, and Anne, chair of the Area Clinical Forum, follows Deirdre McCormick.
Both are now looking forward to their new roles.
Lilian, who is also chair of the Unison Health Service Group, said: “I’m privileged to have been elected as chair of the Area Partnership Forum which allows me to be the employee director.
“Although it is a hugely challenging role it’s one I’m looking forward to and I’ll be looking to carry on the good work that Hugh did.
“My main objectives will be to ensure staff are supported, that their voices are heard and appropriately responded to, and that the organisation acts accordingly.”
Anne is the divisional nurse director for community and primary care, and chair of the Area Nursing and Midwifery Advisory Committee. Her term of office, in the first instance, will be four years. 
She said: “I’m delighted to have been given this opportunity to continue the work carried out by my predecessor Deirdre, who will be a hard act to follow.
“The main challenges ahead will involve representing the views of the Professional Advisory Committees, providing strong clinical leadership and ensuring we continue to provide the high quality patient care and service delivery which Lanarkshire is known for.”
Both Lilian and Anne come with a wealth of experience of working within the NHS.
Lilian has been with NHS Lanarkshire for 25 years and her most recent role was as job evaluation manager and staff side lead for Agenda for Change.
She has been an active trade union activist for 12 to 13 years with UNISON, is deputy convener for the Scottish region and chair of the NHS Lanarkshire branch.
Anne has been in the NHS for 28 years joining NHS Lanarkshire seven years ago.
Her current role is as the divisional nurse director for community and primary care with cross system responsibility for child protection and healthcare associated infection.
Anne has led a number of national groups such as the development of healthcare associated infection guidance for community and primary care, development of national workforce planning tools.
She is also a member of the H1N1 Influenza Delivery Group charged with the implementation of the H1N1 vaccination programme.
