"Wealth of talent and experience" to join our Trust board

West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is delighted to announce the recruitment of five new non-executive directors to their board.

The non-executive directors (NEDs) join the Trust with an impressive range of experience across the health and public sector, with backgrounds in health, public and private sectors.

The new appointments include Tracy Dowling, former chief executive of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust; Antoinette Jackson, previously chief executive of Cambridge City Council; Professor Hillary McCallion, a nurse by background who now runs her own consultancy business; Dr Geraldine O’Sullivan, a psychiatrist who has held numerous senior roles in the NHS; and Krishna Yergol, current chief technology officer for Suffolk County Council.

With two of our existing NEDs reaching the end of their term of appointment early in 2023, the Council of Governors have taken the opportunity to appoint their replacements, as well as filling gaps in the team.

Jude Chin, chair of WSFT said:

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Tracy, Antoinette, Hillary, Geraldine and Krishna to the board and look forward to drawing on their wealth of talent and experience to help us improve the services the Trust provides for its patients and the experiences of our staff.

“The Trust launched a new five-year strategy earlier this year, setting out a clear vision and ambitions, which we are using to drive the organisation forward. Our new NEDs come to us with decades of experience between them and I have no doubt they will make an enormous contribution to helping us deliver our vision.”
