CPFT Chairman David Edwards is delighted to welcome four new Non-Executive Directors to its Board.

Julie Spence OBE and Sir Patrick Sissons both join the Board in January 2013; Julian Baust and John Lappin join in April 2013.

Julie Spence, who lives in Cambridge, is a former Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Police and has more than 30 years’ experience in public service – she has a good understanding of the NHS and is used to operating with high levels of public accountability and public scrutiny. She has demonstrated a real passion for the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Sir Patrick Sissons, a distinguished clinician and academic, who also lives in Cambridge, has worked in university medical schools in clinical academic positions for more than 30 years - latterly as Regius Professor of Physic and Head of the School of Clinical Medicine at the University of Cambridge.

Julian Baust, who comes from Bedfordshire, is a former chairman and managing director of Kodak. He has more than 30 years’ commercial experience of organisational transformation, redesign and performance management gained within service industries. He will bring a particular strength in the performance management of key quality systems and processes.

John Lappin, who’s from Essex, is a finance director with more than 30 years’ public and private sector experience, principally with Royal Mail and currently with the Care Quality Commission. Through his experience with the CQC, he has a very good understanding of the operating and regulatory environment for foundation trusts in healthcare.

David Edwards said: “I believe we have made some great appointments as part of CPFT’s Board development. Given the high quality of our existing team of Non-Executive Directors, it was important to obtain first-class individuals. It also provides me with a first opportunity to thank outgoing Board members Professor Ian Goodyer, Terry Holloway and Ashish Dasgupta for the contribution they have made to the organisation. I look forward to welcoming our new Non-Executive Directors and working with the existing team during the next few months.”
