Welcome to our newest Trustee, Ruth May!
We are delighted to confirm that Ruth May has agreed to join our Board of Trustees.
As you will see from the short biography below, Ruth holds a very significant role within the NHS and is a very welcome addition to our Board.
Ruth May was appointed as Regional Chief Nurse NHS England mids and east in July 2009. She provides strategic leadership for nurses, midwives, allied health professionals and healthcare scientists across the region. She also shares the lead for the Quality Agenda with the Medical Director.
Ruth has a theatre nursing background and more than 20 years experience of working in the NHS. During her career she has held several high profile NHS management roles.
From September 2007 Ruth was Chief Executive of Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust, where she was instrumental in turning round the Trust's financial performance and achieving an 'excellent' rating for quality of services from the Healthcare Commission.
Prior to this Ruth was Chief Executive at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn NHS Trust for two years. She played a pivotal part in turning round the organisation's clinical and financial performance and greatly improved its reputation.
The J's Hospice are very much looking forward to welcoming Ruth, with her extensive experience and expertise, on board!

Ruth May, NHS England's director of nursing for Midland and the East, led the development of the new guidance for boards on staffing. She told the summit it should be seen as a "giant step forward" to "normalise" what is already "business as usual" in some of the best NHS organisations.

This veteran pro-life campaigner decided to educate the Hospital's chief executive, Ruth May, in the horrors of such events. He sent copies of the photographs and other literature to Ms. May.
Upon receiving the pictures, Ruth May complained to the authorities. The Director of Public Prosecutions, as district attorneys are known in the U.K., promptly ordered his arrest on the charge of "sending offensive materials through the mails. The policy then dragged the 75-year-old Catholic, who is nearly crippled with arthritis, from his home and held him in prison until his court date.
In court, the hospital staff recounted how the photographs had upset their delicate sensibilities. Ruth May's secretary, Christine Rogers, said she was "upset" when she opened the letter from Atkinson containing a picture of Baby A. The hospital's "Complaints and litigation manager," Karl Perryman, said that "as a father of two daughters he had been quite disturbed" by the images he had been shown. Ms. May herself opined that "It is upsetting for everyone.
The Norfolk hospital boss, Ms. May, struck him off the waiting list for a hip replacement, and now formally denies him all medical treatment save for life-threatening illnesses.
All this for having exercised his right to freedom of speech on behalf of the voiceless unborn. I have some advice for our English cousins, at least those of the pro-life variety: someone ought to organize a postcard campaign directed at the offended hospital staff--whose hospital apparently continues to authorize abortions, by the way. Let them complain to the police about the thousands, if not tens of thousands of postcards that they are receiving.
