Carole Hudson CBE - A Tribute

27 November 2018

Carole Hudson

It is with great sadness and regret that Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust announces the death of Non-executive Director and Vice Chair of WWL, Mrs Carole Hudson CBE, whilst on holiday in the United States at the weekend.

Carole joined WWL as the Chair of the Audit Committee in July 2015 and became Vice Chair of the trust earlier this year. She was an exceptional individual with a long record of public service, and we were privileged that she brought her energy and passion to us here at WWL. Carole tirelessly promoted the interests of patients, in particular she was concerned about improving the safeguarding of adults and children and meeting the needs of older, frail elderly patients. 

Carole was a true professional but had, at her heart, a compassionate and caring nature. She will be sadly missed by all members of the trust board and many members of the trust staff, governors and volunteers.   

Robert Armstrong, Chairman of WWL said, "As Chair of WWL, I will miss Carole’s support, dedication and generosity of spirit. 

"I extend on behalf of all here at WWL, and my personal condolences to Geoff, Sarah and Michael at this time of deep personal loss.
