Westminster Health Care, recently taken over by Dr Chai Patel, has appointed three top level advisors. They are: Baroness Jill Pitkeathly, a former chief executive of the Carers National Association, who will provide strategic advice on a range of social care policy issues; Chris Vellenoweth, a former career manager in the NHS and a writer and lecturer on health policy, who will advise on regulation, quality standards, new service development and related nursing and care matters; and Bob Lewis, a former director of social services, who will advise on social care developments in the UK and Europe. Commenting on the appointments, Dr Patel said the Westminster board was looking to build a top level advisory team to assist in the planning and development of future services and advise on current national and local government policies in the health and social care sectors.
