Troubled Morecambe Bay Trust appoints new head

Morecambe Bay Trust appoints new Chair Credit: PA

The troubled University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust has appointed a new Chair. Pearse Butler has eighteen years’ experience as an NHS Chief Executive in a variety of organisations including Royal Liverpool Children’s Hospital (Alder Hey), the former Cumbria and Lancashire Strategic Health Authority, and Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals. He'll join the Trust by the end of Autumn. He said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to the role of Chair, at a time when the Trust is clearly on a road to improvement, with so many exciting developments happening. The hospitals have had some well-documented problems, and the recent CQC report must have been very disappointing for everyone, but the way staff, governors and leaders have responded really is admirable and I look forward to working with them all.”
