Chairman to leave NHS for new role.

THE chairman of Northumberland, Tyne & Wear NHS Foundation Trust is stepping down.

Jules Preston is to take up the role of chairman of Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust from October 1. Mr Preston has been Chairman of the Foundation Trust since it was formed in April 2006. Over that time the Trust has become one of the top performing NHS Foundation Trusts in the country.

Mr Preston said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. After six and half years I will be sad to leave but know that I am leaving a really successful Trust that has an exciting and ambitious future ahead of it."

Fiona Standfield, currently deputy chairman at the Trust, has been appointed to be acting chairman from October.

Over the coming months she will work closely with the Trust Board and the Council of Governors on the process to appoint a new Chairman.

Dr Gillian Fairfield, chief executive of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust said: "On behalf of the Trust Board and the Council of Governors I would like to put on record our thanks and appreciation for the dedication and commitment Jules has shown during his time here. We wish him well in his new role."
