CPFT strengthens board with three new non-executive directors
29 September 2014

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust has moved to strengthen its board with the appointment of three new non-executive directors.
 
The appointments of Simon Burrows, Diana Forsyth and Jo Lucas have been formally approved by the Trust’s Council of Governors who led the recruitment and selection process.

Simon, from Whittlesey, was most recently Group Director at TNS (UK) the world's largest market, social and political research business. Currently operating as an independent management consultant, he also serves as a trustee on the board of several charities.

Diana (above right), who lives in Cambridge, is a management consultant specialising in organisational development and change.  She is currently a non-executive director of Henshaw’s Society for Blind People, and previously served as a non-executive director of Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust and NHS Central Eastern Region Commissioning Support Unit.

Jo (right), from Chesteron, has spent nearly 40 years in mental health services and began her career as a nursing assistant in Fulbourn. She is a psychotherapist in Cambridge and works with a number of mental health organisations.
 
Elizabeth Mitchell, Lead Governor of CPFT, said: “Governors welcome the new non-executive directors and the strong business and public sector experience they bring with them.

"Especially important for Governors is the commitment they all gave to engage effectively with service users and carers so their experiences can help shape services.”
