THERE are now three new members on a health council board in north Kent.

Karen Gough, Brian Sangha and Mahmood Usman are the new non-executive directors on the Dartford and Gravesham Primary Care Trust (PCT) board. They will join existing non-executive directors John Ogden and Ethna Cooke.

All NHS trusts have non-executive directors who are local people from all walks of life with interests in health issues.

They are appointed for up to four years by the Secretary of State and are paid £5,140 a year.

The next board meeting of the PCT will be held on May 3 from 2pm to 4pm, in the Church Hall, Holy Trinity Church, Dartford. Everybody is welcome.
