The NHS Litigation Authority, which defends and settles claims
against the NHS and advises hospitals on how to avoid litigious
situations, has created the role of head of communications. The
appointee will be responsible for developing and co-ordinating marketing
and media policy. ’The organisation has been evolving over the last four
to five years, and we’ve taken on additional responsibilities, so we’re
looking for someone who can bring an extra marketing dimension,’ said
director of finance, Tom Fothergill.
