New Chief Executive appointment
The Trust has appointed Dr John Brewin as its new Chief Executive to take over after Ruth Hawkins retires.
John, a consultant psychiatrist for 23 years, is currently CEO at Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust (LPFT), where he has been in that role for four years and was their Medical Director for three years prior to this. John previously worked for Nottinghamshire Healthcare in a variety of senior clinical roles between 1995-2011 and he also trained in Nottingham. John has an extensive career history of leadership and managerial roles, with experience as an associate medical director and clinical director before he joined LPFT.
Dean Fathers, Chair of Nottinghamshire Healthcare, said: “John’s achievements during his time at LPFT include the Trust moving from ‘Requires Improvement’ in 2015 to ‘Good’ in 2017 in the CQC ratings. He has also helped the Trust improve quality, deliver strong performance and meet financial targets year on year. Some of John’s other skills are around culture, leadership and staff engagement. We look forward to him bringing those skills back into this Trust and enhancing the already good reputation we have for care, compassion and the involvement of our patients, carers, volunteers and staff.”
John commented: “I’m delighted to be moving back to Nottinghamshire Healthcare as CEO. I have had a really rewarding time in Lincolnshire and have enjoyed working with and leading a marvellous staff team, where we have seen real improvements in the services we provide to our service users and carers. I am looking forward to the challenge of leading a much larger Trust, with all of the complexities that entails. I have fond memories of my time in Nottingham and look forward to taking up post in due course.”
John’s start date is yet to be confirmed, but is likely to be towards the end of the year.
