It is with the greatest sadness that we have to report the death of our non-executive director Prof. Tricia McGregor who has passed away after a short battle with cancer.

She has been a great ally of KSS AHSN since our formation in 2013 and a valued non-executive director with us and SECAMB.

Tricia was also well known and well respected as Founder and Joint Managing Director at Central Surrey Health, the UK’s first co-owned social enterprise from NHS services. She was awarded an MBE for services to social enterprises in 2011.

Her passion to improve services for patients, to empower staff and to embrace innovation is a huge loss to us all. A kind and supportive colleague, generous with her views and knowledge, she will be greatly missed by all who knew and worked with her.

Our thoughts are with her family at this very sad time.
