Professor Paul Corrigan resigns as Chair of Care City

Paul accepts new role as Strategic Advisor to Department of Health & Social Care.

Congratulations to Professor Paul Corrigan, who earlier this week accepted a new role as Strategic Advisor to the Department of Health and Social Care and will therefore be stepping down from his role as Chair of the Care City Board.

Paul was instrumental in the concept and development of Care City when it started as an organisation funded and governed by the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham and North East London Foundation Trust back in 2014 – a company that has helped understand local health and care needs and worked hard to rethink and innovate smarter, more effective ways to better resident care. 

Since then he has led the Board in aiding Care City through its transition to a Community Interest Company and forward in its mission of supporting people across North East London to live healthier, happier lives. 

Avril McIntyre, a current member of the Board, Director of Community Resources and Chair of BD Collective will step up as Interim Chair whilst we recruit to the permanent role. 

We’d like to thank Paul on behalf of the team, the Board and all of the community members and partners we work with for his unwavering commitment to us over the last 10 years and wish him well in his new role. 

I want to thank Paul for his energy, passion and unwavering support for Care City and our work. He’ll be deeply missed by the organisation but we wish him all the best in his new role and look forward to seeing the positive difference he will make to health and care.

Matt Skinner, CEO, Care City

“We are delighted that Paul has been invited into this strategic role in the new government. His shoes will be hard to fill, Paul’s leadership over the last 10 years has ensured Care City is positioned to have a lasting and significant impact on how health & social care services are delivered locally, regionally and nationally”. Avril McIntyre, Interim Chair, Care City Board
