CHS Clinical Director Retires
Dr. Lucy Fuks retired as Clinical Director at CHS at the end of June after 7 years in the post. She is continuing in her private practice and of course, all of us here at CHS wish her the very best for the future both personally and professionally. Dr. Harry Pomerantz has taken over the Clinical Director role.
Chairman, Rex Parker writes,
"Lucy Fuks has been a long time active participant in CHS and has been Clinical Director since 2005. Her boundless energy, commitment and enthusiasm have been a conerstone of CHS during much of that time. She has decided that the time has now come to leave CHS and focus on her private clinical practice. She is handing over the role of Clinical Director to Harry Pomerantz. The whole organisation is sad to see Lucy leave and wishes her much success in the future and at the same time welcomes Harry to his new role."
Dr Fuks comments,
"CHS is really a great place to work. For many years, I have enjoyed
helping CHS patients from all over the world. It has also been an
enriching experience to collaborate with dedicated and competent
colleagues, ranging from professional therapists to the clinical staff
and volunteers from the whole organisation.
I learned a lot through my role as Clinical Director. It was sometimes challenging and always interesting. CHS fills a very important role for the English speaking expatriates of Brussels, and I am happy to have contributed.
Now the time has come for me to focus more exclusively on my clinical work. I will do this from my home practice. Harry Pomerantz will take over the role of Clinical Director of CHS. I wish him and CHS all the best for the coming years."
Chairman, Nick Fern Steps Down
On May 22nd Rex Parker replaced Nick Fern as CHS Chairman.
