Medipass has appointed Gaile Smyth as MES Manager at its Belfast site. Prior to taking up her new post with Medipass, Gaile was the Radiotherapy Services Manager for the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre, a position she held for more than 14 years.
Gaile has a dynamic background in radiotherapy clinical services and management with extensive experience in the NHS. Since qualifying as a therapeutic radiographer in 1982, she has held a number of clinical positions during her career as a radiographer and at the same time furthered her academic achievements, completing a Master’s in Business Administration at University of Ulster.
Gaile was also an integral part of the project team for the Cancer Centre project at Belfast City Hospital from its inception, and was involved from the start with the MES at a clinical operational level. Along with clinical colleagues she helped manage the smooth transition of radiotherapy services from Belvoir Park Hospital to the new Cancer Centre in March 2006.
In more recent times she has been involved with the planning and equipment selection for the new department currently being built at Altnagelvin in Londonderry, which will expand capacity and improve radiotherapy access to the population in the North-West of the province and Donegal in the Republic of Ireland.
With Gaile’s appointment as MES Manager, Medipass continue to ensure a strong local management team is in place at each of its MES sites.
