LIVERPOOL, February 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Gray Healthcare has appointed former director of operations of Cambian healthcare Noel Tracey to lead its expanding Community Recovery Team, as Clinical Director.
Noel has more than 15 years' experience of senior management in mental health in both the NHS and the private sector. In his previous role as director of operations at Cambian Healthcare, covering 12 psychiatric rehabilitation hospitals, he created and implemented a stress vulnerability model that was a key factor in optimising the performance of nursing teams across the group. As strategic forensic services manager for Pennine Care NHS Trust he led the development of specialist services and the return of service users to their home area. He led a multi-disciplinary team covering 5 NHS hospitals and 1 prison, providing NHS inreach with a rehab philosophy across all levels of security.
Noel Tracey will lead the recovery team at Gray Healthcare, and will work closely with chief executive Jonathan Gray to implement the company's unique Structured Recovery Model. "I feel this will be my most challenging role yet in my 22 years in mental health but my most rewarding, enabling service users with complex and challenging mental health needs to return back to the community instead of staying in inpatient services for longer periods of time than necessary" says Noel.
"By placing service users into their own homes, we are promoting social
inclusion for those who need monitoring and ongoing support as they migrate
from secure hospitals and other inpatient facilities to community
integration. Gray Healthcare has developed a radical new approach to patient
recovery within environments that are closer to an independent way of life.
This offers a better outcome for each service user, w
