The Meath Epilepsy Charity, which this year is marking its 125th Anniversary, is also celebrating the recruitment of a new Chief Executive. Lindsay Hill has been working at the Meath as Executive Director for the past seventeen months.
Lindsay has worked in Health and Social Care for the past twenty-eight years. She started work in Aylesbury as a nursing assistant within hospital services for people with learning disabilities. This set her on her career path, studying to become a Registered Nurse within the learning disability sector at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
Since then, Lindsay has enjoyed varied and often challenging roles as a care inspector and registered manager, and then in positions within area management, quality assurance, governance and training. She took a four-year break from Social Care in 2011 and joined the Residential and Commercial Services team at the University of Leicester. This gave her invaluable commercial, customer service and estates management experience, which she is now looking forward to using to full advantage in her new role.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity of leading the Meath Charity forward. Having worked with Mike over the past year, I am hoping that there will be a seamless transition. He has achieved remarkable results in his seven years as CEO and the Meath’s ‘Outstanding’ Care Quality Commission (CQC) rating speaks volumes of his leadership throughout that time.
“It has been my life’s ambition to achieve Chief Executive and for it to be at the Meath is truly the cherry on the top for me. I am looking forward to delivering for the Charity, as well as the local community, since we are now very much part of the local scene.”
