Lance joins us from Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust (HHCT) where he was CEO. He has a track record of senior management in the NHS and recently led HHCT from inadequate to good in just one CQC inspection.

Alan Burns, Chairman, said: "I am delighted on behalf of the Trust to announce Lance's appointment. I know that with Lance's focus on improving the safety and quality of patients' experience, we will have the best possible chance of following Hinchingbrooke's example."

Lance is looking forward to making PAHT an outstanding place to receive treatment and a great place to work, and said: "This is the perfect job in so many ways - the chance to be part of the development of PAHT is exciting. 

"The chance to shape health and social care across West Essex by developing our Accountable Care Partnership is a challenge I shall relish. And finally the chance to work with a staff team who are so obviously caring and  committed to doing the best for patients will be a pleasure."
