22nd December 2009

The Department of Health has announced that it has chosen Professor Matthew Cooke as its new national clinical director for urgent and emergency care.

Professor Cooke will begin work in 2010. He said: "I look forward to being able to work with colleagues in ambulance services, primary care, emergency departments and secondary care to further improve the quality and safety of emergency care delivered by the NHS. Working closely with service users and NHS staff will be key to re-energising the system to bring about emergency care improvements."
