Liz Kendall, Director of the Ambulance Service Network for the NHS Confederation, has resigned to follow a career in national politics.
Ms Kendall, a former social policy consultant at the Institute for Public Policy Research and a former special adviser to Patricia Hewitt MP, was appointed as the first Ambulance Service Network Director at the NHS Confederation in May 2008.
Steve Barnett, NHS Confederation Chief Executive, said:
“Liz Kendall has been selected as the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Leicester West. She has resigned from her position as Director of the Ambulance Service Network for the NHS Confederation, and will complete her notice period at the end of January 2010.
“The NHS Confederation is currently considering how best to replace Liz and provide effective support for the Ambulance Network. We would like to thank Liz for her hard work in support of the Ambulance Service Network and to wish her all the best for the future.”
