Healthcare specialist Keiro has appointed a new general manager to head up its new £10m facility on Teesside.

The Gateway centre, which is due to open in January, will provide support for people with long term neurological conditions to regain and retain their independence, meaning a quicker discharge from hospital and a reduction in long-term care costs.

Ernie Richardson was offered the position after a 30-year career in top level roles within the NHS and care services including speciality manager at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care in Newcastle, Northumbria Healthcare operational services manager and director of operations at Surrey Ambulance Service.

Richardson’s appointment is the first in a major recruitment drive for The Gateway, which will create 120 jobs.
