His post, which in­cludes re­spon­si­bil­ity for our IT and es­tates, is cru­cial to im­ple­ment­ing our trans­for­ma­tion strat­egy to achieve clin­i­cal and fi­nan­cial sus­tain­abil­ity and, ul­ti­mately, be­come one of the safest health­care sys­tems in the coun­try.

“This is a great time to join Buck­ing­hamshire Health­care NHS Trust. We are on an ex­cit­ing jour­ney to trans­form how we pro­vide care for our pa­tients in the fu­ture. To achieve this we have three pri­or­i­ties – qual­ity, peo­ple and money – which are at the heart of ev­ery­thing we do.

“Th­ese pri­or­i­ties, in com­bi­na­tion with our or­gan­i­sa­tional val­ues and our unique po­si­tion as an in­te­grated Trust pro­vid­ing care in hos­pi­tals and out in the com­mu­nity, help us de­liver the safe and com­pas­sion­ate care that our pa­tients de­serve, ev­ery time.”

Mr Drury said: “I am looking for­ward to join­ing the team in Septem­ber and to us­ing my ex­per­tise and NHS ex­pe­ri­ence to help achieve the Trust’s am­bi­tious plans for the fu­ture.

“By work­ing closely with our part­ners and un­der­stand­ing the health­care sys­tem in the county I hope to sup­port the Trust in pro­vid­ing great care to the peo­ple of Buck­ing­hamshire and en­sure that qual­ity pa­tient care goes hand in hand with fu­ture fi­nan­cial sus­tain­abil­ity.”
