Changing roles for Somerset people

Autism Somerset, bids farewell to many supporters in Health and Social Care as they move on and wishes them and their successors well.

We look forward to working with Somerset County Cllr William Wallace, who takes on Cabinet responsibility for Adult Social Care, enabling Cllr Christine Lawrence to concentrate on Health and Well being. Read more about the Somerset County Council Cabinet members

We welcome Dr Stephen Ladyman, new Chairman of Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

We say farewell to his predecessor Linda Nash and former Director of Health and Social Care Diana Rowe, both good friends to autism over the years.

Hayley Johnson, from Learning Disability services, will be heading up the Asperger Consultancy Team, until the return of Team Manager Claire Healey in September 2014.

We congratulate our News Editor Phil Matcham on his full time appointment to Healthwatch Somerset.
