Welcome to Alan Hay, who has joined the Trust as a Safeguarding Specialist within the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) team:

My name is Alan Hay and on 2nd December 2019, I commenced my employment with EEAST in the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) Team.

I am employed with the Trust as a Multi-Agency Safeguarding Specialist/Social Worker. I work alongside my colleagues, Mercedes MacFarlane (Social Worker) and Beverley McWilliams (Social Worker).

I am a qualified Adult Social Worker with 18 years experience. I have worked in the fields of probation, mental health, older people and for many years for an armed forces, veteran's charity. My earlier careers have included service as a Police Officer and employment as a Telephone Engineer. My interests centre around travel, motorcycling and more motorcycling!

My role within SPOC will be to support colleagues to review the referrals that are made to our partner agencies, helping to ensure appropriate GP, Social Care and safeguarding decisions for adults and children. We have already made changes to the adult pathways when staff call into SPOC, and changes will be made to children's pathways.

I have had a warm welcome, positive support and feedback from colleagues that I have met within EEAST. I am excited about my role and looking forward to working with you to ensure the changes our appointments brings will be of benefit to patients, staff and other agencies..

Multi-Agency Safeguarding Specialist/Social Worker
