The Faculty of Clinical Informatics is delighted to announce that Dr Mark Bailey has been confirmed as the Faculty’s new Interim Chair of Council and Maggie Lay RN has been confirmed as the Faculty’s new Interim Vice Chair of Council.

There is a lot of work to be done to make great digital healthcare happen in the UK and I am eager to push for positive change with the aid of the FCI’s new strategy. I am looking forward to working with Maggie Lay, newly appointed Interim Vice Chair of Council and other Council colleagues, FCI members and the wider clinical informatics community on this task.”
Speaking on her new appointment as Interim Vice Chair Of Council, Maggie Lay said “Now in my second term as a member of Council I am honoured and excited to take on the role of Interim Vice Chair of Council working alongside Dr Mark Bailey as Interim Chair of Council and my other Council colleagues.
I am delighted that Clinical Safety features strongly in the FCI strategy and will use my position and experience as a Registered Nurse and Clinical Safety Officer to promote wider understanding of and commitment to Clinical Safety at every level and nuance of Clinical Informatics, and throughout Health and Care organisations.”
Commenting on the appointment of the Faculty’s new Interim Chair and Interim Vice Chair of Council, Bill Morgan, Chair of Trustees said: “We are very lucky to have such a talented and diverse skillset across our Faculty Membership and Council Team. Today’s appointment of Mark Bailey as Interim Chair of Council and Maggie Lay as Interim Vice Chair of Council reflect this and we are very grateful to have them leading our Council and pushing forward our new strategy objectives as part of FCI 2.0.
I wish Mark and Maggie well in their new roles and I and my fellow trustees are very much looking forward to working with them.”
