Announcing Dr David Spalter, our new Organisational Clinical Lead
Mind in Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster is delighted to announce Dr David Spalter as the new Organisational Clinical Lead and latest member of the Senior Management Team.
During 2019, Mind in Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster conducted a strategic review of mental health needs and support, which identified the growing need for clinical services to support an increasing level of acuity. This led the charity to strategically reposition and deliver more NHS commissioned clinical services. This important new role was created following this change and will ensure that Mind in Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster safely, effectively and ethically provide support for people with more complex mental health needs.
Dr Spalter will lead all clinical policy, delivery and auditing with responsibility for supporting all colleagues on clinical matters. He will support the Board of Trustees on governance matters, including membership of the Quality Sub-committee and lead on clinical certifications.
Simon Thompson, CEO said ‘As a clinician myself by training, I have found a well-respected and knowledgeable senior clinician, that puts his colleagues and service users at the very centre of what we do. We know that to be sustainable and continue to grow and provide safe services having a dedicated person to champion this vital role will give assurance to commissioners, colleagues and service users alike.”
