Adam Sewell-Jones, chief executive of Newham Hospital and Group Director at Barts Health NHS Trust, has been offered the role of chief executive at East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust.
The decision to offer Adam the role comes after a robust recruitment process and follows Nick Carver’s announcement to retire as chief executive at the end of this year.
Adam brings with him a wealth of NHS experience including as deputy chief executive at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, where he was responsible for strategy and transformation. Adam has also worked in senior executive roles for NHS Improvement before its merger with NHS England.
When accepting this offer, Adam said: “I am thrilled to have been offered the role as chief executive of East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust and am looking forward to working with our staff, service users and partners to deliver high-quality care to our communities.”
Ellen Schroder, Chair of East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, said: “On behalf of the board, I would like to offer my congratulations to Adam and I look forward to working with him as we recover from the impacts of the pandemic. Our priorities will continue to be to deliver high-quality care to our patients while developing and supporting our people to be the best that they can be.”
Adam will join East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust at the end of the year.
