One of Redbridge’s biggest suppliers of minor surgeries and other healthcare have unveiled a new member of their leadership team.

The North London NHS Treatment Centre at King George Hospital in Barley Lane, Goodmayes, have announced Kerry White as their new hospital director.

The centre offers NHS day and inpatient treatments in a number of minor surgical and medical treatments such as gallbladder removal and the treatment of bowel conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Kerry will now take charge of services providing secondary care to people across the region.

The 37-year-old qualified as a nurse at Kingston University before going on to work at King Edward VII, University College London Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital.

Most recently, she was divisional director of planned care at Bedford Hospital NHS Trust.

Kerry said: “Professionally, I have two passions - delivering excellent patient care in the safest possible environment and ensuring services are an efficient use of public funds.

“We have to ensure that, in the budgets available we deliver care that will enhance the health and wellbeing of as many patients as possible.

“The team and I will be working to maintain strong approval rating as well as keeping up our robust hygiene protocols that have helped us to maintain our five-year record of zero cases.

“Secondary care, such as the removal of cataracts, helps people get back to the lives they love while our endoscopy service gives patients and their GPs swift results that can minimise the stress of waiting for a diagnosis.”
