Update on Chief Executive appointment process Ė Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust

29 April, 2015 by Andy

As many of AIMHS members will by now probably know, Rachel Newson is due to retire as Chief Executive of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust, her last working day will be Friday 15 May.

Her replacement will be Simon Gilby.

Simon is currently the Chief Executive of the Wirral Community NHS Trust.

Arrangements have been put in place to ensure the Chief Executive role is covered until Simon arrives to take up his position.

Josie Spencer, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Operations, will take on the role of Interim Chief Executive for the period beginning Monday 18 May 2015 until, at least, 30 June 2015. The end date for these arrangements will depend on confirmation of Simonís formal start date with our Trust.

Sharon Binyon will be Interim Deputy Chief Executive in Josieís absence during this period. Barry Day, currently Associate Director of Operations, Secondary Care Mental Health, has been appointed to act up in the Director of Operations role for the duration of these interim arrangements.

We will update you all as soon as we have any further news of Simonís start date.

Everyone at AIMHS would like to take this opportunity to wish Rachel a happy retirement!

In terms of meaningful User Involvement, we are looking forward to forging a new productive working partnership with Simon Gilby.
