High-pow­ered di­rec­tors ap­pointed to trust board

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & world Update -

FOUR new non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tors have been ap­pointed to the board of Peter­bor­ough and Stam­ford Hos­pi­tals NHS Foun­da­tion Trust.

The group were whit­tled down from a short-list of 48 ap­pli­cants with those cho­sen hav­ing pres­ti­gious back­grounds and of­fer­ing a wide range of ex­per­tise that health bosses hope will help the cash­strapped or­gan­i­sa­tion with its turn­around plan.

The new di­rec­tors are Allan Ar- nott, Ken Bee­ton, Steve Brown and Sarah Dun­nett.

Mr Arnott re­cently re­tired from Perkins En­gines Com­pany Lim­ited and is cur­rently chair­man of the Univer­sity Cen­tre Peter­bor­ough; Mr Bee­ton is a se­nior of­fi­cial at HM Trea­sury, who will take the role with the hos­pi­tal when he re­tires in Jan­uary 2012.

Mrs Dun­nett is a char­tered ac­coun­tant and former as­sis­tant chief ex­ec­u­tive at the Lon­don Bor- ough of South­wark.

Mr Brown was one of the found­ing di­rec­tors of Cen­ter Parcs and has ex­ten­sive non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor ex­pe­ri­ence within the NHS.

He will take up the role on March 31, while the other three will join on De­cem­ber 31.

Trust chair­man Nigel Hards said: “We are, first and fore­most, driven to pro­vide pa­tients with ex­cel­lent care but we need the or­gan­i­sa­tion to be strong and have an ex­cel­lent com­mer­cial ca­pa­bil­ity in or­der to un­der­pin that care.

“I am con­fi­dent that these four ap­point­ments will help us do just that as we will be able to draw upon their knowl­edge and ex­per­tise from a di­verse range of ar­eas.

“I look for­ward to wel­com­ing them all in the new year.”

The four new di­rec­tors will fill va­can­cies left by Jonathan Rad­way, Caro­line Stark, Stu­art An­der­son and Raza­hu­sein Rahim.
