Written by Charity Times staff writer

Teenage Cancer Trust has appointed Dr Louise Soanes as its new director of services.

Soanes, who is currently Teenage Cancer Trust Nurse Consultant at University College London Hospitals (UCLH), will replace the charity's interim director of services, Tanya Curry, in the Autumn this year.

Prior to this, Soanes has worked in a variety of clinical, academic and managerial roles. She has extensive experience in teenage and young adult cancer care and a detailed understanding of the opportunities and challenges that charities face when delivering services in partnership with the NHS.

Her appointment follows an open selection and recruitment process, which included an interview with young people who have experienced cancer and received support from the charity.

Commenting on Louise’s appointment, Teenage Cancer Trust chief executive, Kate Collins said: “I could not be more thrilled that we have been able to bring someone of Louise’s calibre to Teenage Cancer Trust.

"Her skill, enthusiasm and depth of clinical experience and leadership – as well as long-term commitment to the vision and purpose of the charity – shone through during the selection process. I am sure she will help us go from strength to strength, ensuring we can do everything possible for young people with cancer.”

Soanes added: “The opportunity to join such a dynamic and high-calibre organisation as Teenage Cancer Trust as the new director of services is enormously exciting. I’m looking forward to working with the talented and committed teams in the charity and across the NHS to deliver greater impact for young people and their families as they face cancer.”
