14 November 2019: The Foundation Trust’s Council of Governors has today ratified the appointment of Professor Simon Constable as chief executive following an intensive assessment process which concluded earlier this week.

Professor Constable will take up his appointment with immediate effect as he has been acting chief executive since Mel Pickup left the Trust at the end of October 2019. He joined the Trust as medical director in 2015 from the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals and was appointed deputy CEO in February 2016.

The Trust’s Chairman and Chair of the Council of Governors, Steve McGuirk CBE DL said: “The Board moved quickly to recruit and appoint our new chief executive and we are confident that Simon has the vision, ambition and leadership qualities required to lead the Trust on its continuing journey to ‘Outstanding’. I know that our staff will be delighted to hear of his appointment and together we wish Simon every success in his new role.”

The Governors also approved the updated FT constitution, changing the Trust’s name to Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS FT, the culmination of three years’ work to develop and diversify the Trust’s 4,400 workforce to meet the future needs of a fast growing and aging patient population. The Trust’s academic partner, the University of Chester, has endorsed the Trust’s Teaching status.

“This has been a monumental year for the Trust with the CQC awarding a clean-sweep ‘Good’ across our inspected services in July,” said Mr McGuirk.

“Becoming a Teaching Trust is an important milestone on our journey as our extensive and diverse teaching opportunities will make our hospitals even more attractive places to work when candidates have more than one choice."
