Interim Board leadership arrangements
Date: 03 May 2022
Jackie Smith, Trust Chair (pictured) will be leaving as Chair of BEH and C&I in July.
Jackie will be taking up a new role as Chair of the Queen Victoria Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in East Grinstead, which is closer to her family. Queen Victoria Hospital is a specialist NHS hospital providing life-changing reconstructive surgery, burns care and rehabilitation services across the south east of England and beyond.
Jackie said: "I am really sad to be leaving BEH and C&I. The partnership has already achieved a lot and the two organisations have a very exciting future together. I will really miss the buzz of both Trusts and the many colleagues and friends I have here".
Jackie will be working together closely with Jinjer Kandola, our Chief Executive, on the interim Board leadership arrangements to ensure stability and continuity.
