02 February 2007 at 16:08
Southport & Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust is pleased to announce that Mr Michael Eastwood has been re-appointed as a Non-executive Director of the Trust Board. Mr Eastwood, who lives in Southport first joined the Trust as a Non-executive Director in December 2002, and he has been re-appointed to serve until November 2010.

As a hospital Trust providing comprehensive acute care to the 240,000 or so population of Sefton and West Lancashire, we are obliged by law to have a Trust Board that includes a Chair and five Non-executive Directors.

Mr Eastwood's career has been linked to health since qualifying in l969 as an Environmental Health Officer. His career has been split between local government practice and university teaching having been Director of Environmental Health and Consumer Protection for Manchester City Council and member of the Committee of Inquiry into the future of Public Health in England.

Mr. Eastwood was a member of the Health of the Nation Wider Health Working Group, involved with Liverpool John Moores University as a Research Fellow in Public Health and Chaired the North West Regional Food and Health Task Force from 1999 - 2002.

As part of his responsibilities as a Non Executive Director, Mr Eastwood chairs the Human Resources Strategy Committee.

He is married with two children and four grandchildren.

All Non-executive appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointee’s political activity (if any) to be made public: Mr Eastwood has not declared any. Similarly, details of any other Ministerial appointments held are to be declared, but again Mr Eastwood holds none. He will be paid a remuneration of £5,800 per annum.
