My experience

I am a qualified chartered accountant and have previously worked in finance director roles at the Homerton Hospital and also at Oxford Radcliffe Hospital.

I’ve been CEO at Kingston Hospital since 2019 and was delighted to also be appointed as CEO at HRCH in 2021.

Thoughts on the new role

It’s a real honour to be the Chief Executive across HRCH and Kingston Hospital. My hope is that through new ways of working and with a commitment to greater investment in community services, we will be able to do so much more to prevent ill health, and provide more care for people at home, so that admission to hospital occurs as a last resort. In re-shaping our workforce to meet changing need, I am committed to ensuring that we become more representative of the populations we serve, within every level of the organisation.

Something about me

I’m a keen cyclist and regularly enjoy cycling from my home in Richmond, to work and back. I’m really proud to be dad to my son Theo, and in my free time I am also a rugby coach.
