Dean Wallace, Director of Public Health, to leave the council
29 April 2022
It is with sadness and pride in equal measure that we announce that Dean Wallace, Director of Public Health, will be leaving us in late summer / early autumn to take up the role of Chief Operating Officer at the Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust.
Dean has worked with us in the role of Director of Public Health since 2016 and has steered the organisation, and Derbyshire, through the biggest public health crisis of the last 70 years. His practical, hands-on and friendly approach will be missed by colleagues across the council although Dean will obviously continue to work with us through our strong partnership with our NHS colleagues.
Dean will be with the us for the next few months and will be involved in the process of recruiting a new Director of Public Health. We will keep you informed as this progresses and congratulations to Dean on his new role.
