Departures from Nottingham University Hospitals executive team announced

A number of departures from the board of Nottingham University Hospital Trust have been announced.

The trust runs the Queen’s Medical Centre and City Hospital in Nottingham and employs more than 18,000 staff.

Some of the roles will not be replaced due to the trust’s significant overspend.

The changes will be discussed further at the trust’s board meeting on January 11.

Chief nurse Michelle Rhodes is to leave her post, with Tracy Pilcher replacing her in March 2024.

Ms Rhodes will continue working part-time at the trust to support the ongoing Independent Maternity Review.

Ms Pilcher currently works as the chief nursing officer for the Coventry and Warwickshire Integrated Care Board.

Alison Wynne, director of strategy and transformation, is also set to leave the trust.

Ms Wynne, who has led work on Tomorrow’s NUH and the National Rehabilitation Centre, will leave on March 31 2024.

Deputy chief executive Rupert Egginton left the trust in December 2023 after retiring and then returning at the start of the year.

Mr May said the roles of Ms Wynne and Mr Egginton will not be replaced.

Mr May wrote in board papers: “Both vacancies offer an opportunity to review portfolios across the Executive team.

“To address our significant overspend, it is important that all areas of NUH contribute and make savings to help reduce our deficit. After due consideration, the decision has been made not to replace Rupert and Alison.”

He said that their work will be redistributed to other members of the board from April 2024.

Chief people officer Neil Pease has also left the trust to work for Lancashire Teaching Hospitals.

The trust announced last year that medical director Keith Girling is set to retire in summer 2024.

His replacement will be announced in the next few months.
