New Chief Executive Officer appointed

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust has appointed Jon Green as its new Chief Executive.

Mr Green, who is currently Executive Chief Operating Officer at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, will join the QEH in May.

He said: “I am excited by the opportunity to help QEH at such an important stage in its recovery and to lead the organisation as it strives to deliver high quality healthcare.

“I am really looking forward to bringing some of my experiences from elsewhere and working with all staff to develop an organisation that we and our community can rightly be proud of.”

The Board level appointment was made following a rigorous nationwide recruitment process.

Edward Libbey, Trust Chair, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Jon to our hospital.

“He was a standout candidate and brings with him an exceptional acute operational background having managed services at acute sites in London, the East Midlands and West Suffolk. “

Mr Libbey also praised the work of current CEO Dorothy Hosein.

He said: “Dorothy has given a great deal to this organisation over the past few years and everyone at QEH thanks her for her dedication.

“It is thanks to Dorothy’s leadership that Jon is joining a dynamic organisation which, though not without its problems, has been recognised at a regional, national and parliamentary level as having achieved so much in such a short period of time. “
