King's Lynn hospital names new chief executive
A new chief executive has been appointed to lead Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Bosses have today announced that Caroline Shaw, currently deputy chief executive and chief operating officer at the Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust, will take up the role next month.
She succeeds Jon Green, who stepped down earlier this month to take up a secondment role at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital looking at the potential integration of health services.
Mrs Shaw has worked in the NHS for more than 30 years, initially as a nurse before moving into midwifery.
She said: “I very much look forward to joining Team QEH and getting to know the organisation and its staff and I’m excited about leading the organisation on its journey of improvement.
"I’m passionate about creating the right culture and conditions for building a happy workforce and always putting patients first.”
Trust chairman, Professor Steve Barnett, said: “We are delighted with this appointment. We are very fortunate to have attracted someone of Caroline’s calibre to take our organisation forward.
"Caroline has a proven track record of continuously improving organisations and getting results.
"She is passionate about transformation and has an unwavering focus on improving patient and staff experience.”
