When Jonathan Maw joined the board in 1974 The Horder Centre was a very different place. Our founder Cecicillia Bochenek had just been awarded an MBE for her achievements in setting up the charity and the NHS had begun embarking on a large scale administrative reorganisation in England. This saw all health services placed into regional and area health authorities.

Chris Stebbing took up his post in 1993, the year surgeon Charles Gallanaugh had been appointed as the Centre’s first Surgical Director. Coinciding with this was the opening of the outpatient department by HRH Princess Margaret to meet the increasing number of referrals. In this year the centre also treated its 1000th patient.
The charity has grown so rapidly during Chris and Jonathan’s tenure, providing outstanding service to an ever increasing number of patients across the South East, from 6 separate locations. These achievements are due in no small part to the contributions made by these men and we would like to thank them both for the outstanding service they have given to Horder Healthcare.
