John is the CEO of NELFT, where he has been for ten years now, and was previously with a Foundation Trust in Berkshire. He is a nurse by background and has worked in health and social care throughout his career. He has a breadth of public service experiencem having held joint posts in both commissioning and provider organisations and has also previously worked for regulatory bodies.
John is also a business graduate but less than keen to advertise how long ago that was. He is passionate about social justice and immensely proud of all of the work that NELFT does but in particular their achievements in the field of equality and diversity. He sees this as an area in which there is much to do in public services and is keen to continue to develop this as a critical part of the future of the NHS workforce.
NELFT operate services in London, Essex and Kent and John sees this geographical spread as an immense opportunity to grow the reputation of the organisation and its culture. John remains optimistic and highly enthusiastic about collaborative opportunities for health and social care to dramatically drive up the quality and effectiveness of the offer to the people we serve in the time ahead.
