A new general manager has been appointed for women and children’s services.

Ashy Shanker is delighted to have moved into the role at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust. For the past 14 years she has gained skills and knowledge from a range of areas including general practice, service improvement, commissioning, strategy development and general management positions.

“It is exciting to work in a new area, challenging myself in a new role. I have been introduced to many people now and I am thrilled to be surrounded by a friendly and dedicated team of clinicians, managers and frontline staff.”
