She said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining UHCW NHS Trust, which has played an important role in mine and my family’s life. I am looking forward to playing my part to help ensure the Trust continues to be a great place to work and to receive care.

“The patient and staff experience are really important to me and I’m also committed to working closely with our partners to help reduce health inequalities and improve the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve.”

Sue will succeed current Chair Jerry Gould, who took up the role on an interim basis from Dame Stella Manzie earlier this year.

Professor Andy Hardy, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Sue is a hugely experienced and highly regarded NHS leader with significant experience of healthcare organisations and the opportunities and challenges we face.
