ON MANY occasions, when you interview top bosses from the health service, you sometimes need to call a nurse as your head is spinning from the jargon. So it was refreshing to sit down and interview Princess Alexandra chief executive Melanie Walker.
Mrs Walker is very much a nurse’s nurse. That phrase can often be over-used but the photo of the younger nurse in her office pays testimony that Mrs Walker has risen through the ranks and, if legend is true, still likes to walk the wards at the Harlow hospital.
YH sat down with the health boss to discuss the challenges and opportunities for PAH in 2013 and beyond.
