The East London and the City Health Authority is to gain its first
dedicated PR manager. Assistant corporate affairs director Andrew Brent
created the position from the old post of corporate secretary, which
combined communications with executive support. The health authority
spans 16 NHS trusts and a number of primary care groups, community
health authorities and local councils. Brent said the new communications
manager would work closely with him to formulate and implement a
communications strategy for its stakeholder groups.
