29th January 2018

Chair of the Northern Health Science Alliance (NHSA) Professor Ian Greer has issued a statement on his departure from the organisation following his appointment to Queen’s University Belfast as Vice Chancellor.

Professor Greer said: “It has been a privilege to work with the Northern Health Science Alliance from its inception six years ago to the respected international organisation that it is today.

“Working together the North of England is a powerful force in health innovation – something which, as named delivery partner, the NHSA is looking forward to seeing recognised in the Life Sciences Industrial Strategy sector deal for the region.

“The NHSA has strong leadership through its board, council and under the excellent watch of its CEO Dr Hakim Yadi OBE and the NHSA team.

“I look forward to seeing its journey progress and I have no doubt it will continue to make a great difference to health and wealth across the North of England.”

Over the next few months a formal process will begin to elect a new chair from the Alliance members. The NHSA will work with Professor Greer over the next six months to hand over management and leadership responsibilities to the incoming chair.
