Heather Tierney-Moore, Chief Executive at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust speaks of her appointment:

Julia joins us having had experience at another NHS organisation and we hope that this experience will help with the development and improvement of the services we provide for people within Lancashire.”
Julia Possener newly appointed Non-Executive Director at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust said:
“I am very excited to be joining Lancashire Care as Non-Executive Director. As I live in Lancaster it is an honour to support Lancashire and the surrounding community which has made me so welcome since I moved here from London.
