PRSB appoints new Chair

The Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) has announced the appointment of Professor Maureen Baker CBE as chair of the organisation.

The PRSB sets professional standards for the content of health and care records to improve the quality and safety of patient care.

Professor Baker is immediate past chair of the Royal College of GPs and has spent her career championing quality improvement and patient safety through better use and sharing of clinical and professional care information.

Professor Baker takes up the chair in September following the retirement of Prof Iain Carpenter, the founding chair of the PRSB.

“We are delighted that Prof Baker has agreed to chair the PRSB,” said Lorraine Foley, chief executive officer. “Her national leadership experience, clinical expertise, and her passion and drive for improving quality and safety will guide the PRSB as it works to embed standards in practice throughout health and social care.

 

“The PRSB is enormously grateful to Prof Iain Carpenter whose vision for standards and commitment to driving their uptake in health and care was instrumental in establishing the PRSB.”

On her appointment Prof Baker said: “Throughout my career as a clinician and medical leader I’ve been utterly committed to improving patient care and I believe information plays a critical part in this.

“I am delighted to take up the role of chair of the PRSB, as their work on developing and implementing standards is fundamental to improving quality and safety. This is an exciting time to be joining the PRSB and I am looking forward to helping it to increase its role and influence within the system and embed standards into the grain of good practice across health and care.”
