Trevor Walker resigns from Constructing Better Health

Trevor Walker has announced he is standing down as chairman of Constructing Better Health.

A statement from CBH said: “After 6 years as Chairman of Constructing Better Health (CBH), Trevor Walker has advised the organisation he is standing down.

“During his tenure with CBH, Trevor has overseen the scheme from concept to a fully deliverable product. He has been key in ensuring a solid legacy and future viability of the National Scheme, delivered in what has been the most difficult market for construction for many years.

“Despite suffering recent ill health, he has been instrumental in the success of CBH but has recognised now that it is time to hand over the reins as the scheme enters a new phase embracing the latest database and delivery technology.”

Mr Walker resigned as chairman of the CSCS last month after a four-month leadership crisis and was replaced by former Labour MP Michael Clapham.

In August, CN reported that unhappiness over the use of CSCS funding to support its subsidiary Constructing Better Health were among the reasons raised when several board members refused to work with the organisation while Mr Walker remained in post.

This story was updated on 2 August 2012.
