“She will also be a critical part of our executive team, helping GOSH become a great place to work, a great place for learning and research, and a great place to be cared for. Tracy follows in the footsteps of the fantastic Alison Robertson, whose experience, leadership, and determined support for nursing and the allied professions has been invaluable in the last three years.”
Tracy Luckett said:
“I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Great Ormond Street and looking forward to making a start with my new colleagues. It’s a great opportunity, with such a celebrated organisation, and I’m pleased to be playing a part in the GOSH story.”
