Cheryl Clayton joined The Wesley Hospital in October 2016. She came to us after some 17 years with Mater Health Services where, in addition to her role as Director of Nursing and Midwifery Mater Private Hospitals, she held senior roles at Mater Mothers’ Hospitals, Mater Children’s Hospital, and as the Director of Clinical Services at Mater Private Hospital Redland.
During her time at Mater Private Hospital Redland, Cheryl was instrumental in the implementation of an effective quality program which led to the hospital winning numerous awards for patient satisfaction and engagement. She puts the welfare of each patient at the centre of all she does and has a reputation for creating a strong culture of engagement with nursing and midwifery leadership, setting a high standard of how staff provide care for patients and each other.
Cheryl has spent several years in both the public and private hospital environments, however, her passion lies in the challenges of the private, not-for-profit sector and supporting those who access care and work in that sector. She is delighted in having joined such a dynamic team at the Wesley. In her words: “It is a privilege to work in an organisation with values that align with my own personal values.”
