NOA prepares to bid farewell to Ann Hoey and welcomes Interim Programme Director

After years of dedicated service, NOA Programme Director, Ann Hoey, is set to embark on a well-deserved retirement and will be leaving the NOA on 6 March 2024. Ann has over the years demonstrated commitment, passion and invaluable contributions to the NOA.

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Alice Fabre as Interim Programme Director. Alice brings with her extensive experience gained at The Federation of Specialist Hospitals and officially begins her new role on 5th February 2024. She has a wealth of expertise and a deep understanding of NOA’s mission.

Alice is well-positioned to uphold the high standards that define NOA’s programmes. Working closely with Ann, the NOA team and colleagues at member organisations, she aims to continue the ongoing activities of the organisation.

Ann Hoey said, “It has been an honour to contribute to the growth of the NOA and I would like to thank colleagues from our member organisations for their support over the past seven years. Without their input and guidance, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve the things I have on behalf of NOA. I have full confidence that Alice will build on our successes and lead NOA to even greater heights.”

Alice Fabre said, “I am delighted to step into this role and continue Ann’s fantastic work. I look forward to working closely with the team and members, contributing to the future success of the NOA.”

In the coming weeks, more details about Alice, including her background, expertise, and vision for the programmes, will be shared. The NOA Board will continue work to search for a permanent Programme Director who shares NOA’s passion and possesses the expertise to lead NOA into the future.
