Stacey McCann

Chief Operating Officer

Belong has strengthened its executive with the appointment of NHS England’s former head of nursing strategy and commissioning, Stacey McCann, to the post of chief operating officer.


Stacey, who was most recently responsible for the implementation of NHS England’s national nursing, midwifery and care staff framework, ‘Leading Change, Adding Value’, joins Belong following an NHS career spanning 36 years.  She adds significant national health sector experience to Belong’s senior management team at a time of substantial planned expansion for the Cheshire headquartered care provider, which has pioneered in the field of dementia care for over a decade. 


During her time with the NHS, Stacey held the posts of national lead for strategic programmes and business, assistant head of commissioning (nursing) and commissioning lead.  As associate director of the North East Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Alliance, she was also responsible for management of the strategic review of the alliance’s cancer services between 2012 and 2013, and previously gained experience in a number of management posts within Yorkshire and Humberside.


Stacey was educated in Merseyside and trained as a nurse in the region before gaining an MSc in Health Sciences at York University.  In January 2018 she received the Nye Bevan Leadership Award in Healthcare Leadership.
