Barrie Brown is the CPHVA’s new Head of Labour Relations
Barrie Brown has been appointed as Head of Labour Relations for the Community Practitioners’ and Health Visitors’ Association.
He replaces Roger Kline who left earlier this year to work for the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA).
Barrie Brown joined MSF, of which CPHVA is a professionally autonomous section, as a regional officer for London with responsibility for primary care in 1997. He previously worked for the British Medical Association as a full-time officer. He lives in East Finchley, north London.
Barrie Brown said: "With the advent of primary care trusts, there are going to be a number of human resources issues confronting CPHVA members in the coming months and years. I am looking forward to tackling this particular challenge, so that CPHVA members can then play their full part in implementing the health improvement plans in their area.’
The CPHVA director, Jackie Carnell said: ‘I am really pleased that Barrie is taking on this role as he has a wealth of experience in the labour relations field which can only greatly benefit our members.’
