A weel-kent face across the organisation for almost 30 years has left for pastures new. Elaine Vanhegan, Head of Performance and Governance with NHS Forth Valley, has taken up a new post with NHS Greater Glasgow as Head of Board Administration and Corporate Governance.
Elaine’s career with Forth Valley began as a staff midwife in Stirling Royal Infirmary, followed by promotion to sister/charge nurse midwife, managing the labour ward. After several secondments to project management programmes, Elaine was appointed to General Manager posts in both medical and surgical services. Following a part-time secondment to Health Care Governance for QIS she became Head of Performance and Governance for NHS Forth Valley in 2005.
