Trust update 20 September 2018

Countess of Chester Hospital chairman Sir Duncan Nichol, said: “After six years’ service to the Trust, Tony Chambers has decided to step aside as chief executive officer. We thank him for his hard work and wish him all the best in the rest of his career. I have asked Dr Susan Gilby, Medical Director and Deputy Chief Executive Officer to be the Acting Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect.”

Outgoing chief executive of Countess of Chester Hospital Tony Chambers said: “It has been a huge privilege to be the chief executive of Countess of Chester Hospital for the past six years. Recent times have been particularly challenging for the hospital not least of which is the ongoing police investigation into an increase in mortality rates in our neonatal unit. My thoughts will continue to be with the bereaved families as they await the outcome of the police investigation. I have now decided to step aside to allow the trust to focus on its future and for me to explore new opportunities and the next stage of my career.”
