Trust in Cartwright

Professor of cancer epidemiology Ray Cartwright has been appointed chair of the country's first primary and community care based health trust in Northumberland. The new organisation will be responsible for social services for adults as well as GP and community health services for a population of 314,000, with a budget of over 330m and over 1,000 health and social care staff.

Professor Cartwright said: "I am delighted to be involved in this unique opportunity, leading the way in the integration of social care with NHS care. Northumberland has a proven track record of collaboration between the NHS and council involving joint budgets for a number of smaller projects, which is why it has been chosen to pilot this bigger scheme."

Professor Cartwright's links with Northumberland began when he researched a PhD on the population of Holy Island, and went on to write a book about the island. He came to Leeds in 1977, after study at Cambridge, London and Durham. As well as his position at the University, he is a board member of North East Leeds primary care group.
