Three Non-Executive Directors re-appointed to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Board

20 September 2010

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s Council of Governors has re-appointed three Non-Executive Directors to the Foundation Trust Board.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s Council of Governors has re-appointed three Non-Executive Directors to the Foundation Trust Board:

  • Charles Wilson was re-appointed for a term of one year ending on 31 October 2011. He is the Senior Independent Director and Chair of the Assurance Committee. Charles spent 50 years in the newspaper industry, serving as editor of a number of papers including The Times and he retired as Managing Director of the Mirror Group plc.
  • Andrew Havery was re-appointed for a term of one year ending on 31 October 2011. He has been a councillor in Westminster since 2002 and is a chartered accountant, working for KPMG for eight years before becoming a compliance officer to investment banks.
  • Professor Richard Kitney OBE was re-appointed for a term of two years ending on 31 October 2012. Professor Kitney is Professor of Biomedical Systems Engineering and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at Imperial College. He is a leading authority on the use of IT in healthcare and is Chairman and Director of Visbion Ltd.

All Non-Executive Directors are required to have an appraisal of their performance and a rigorous evaluation by Trust Chairman Professor Sir Christopher Edwards before they are considered for re-appointment.

The assessment process also considers the balance of skills and experience of each Non-Executive to ensure they are in line with the requirements of the Trust Board and the needs of the hospital.

The Trust’s Council of Governors includes elected representatives of patients, members of the public and hospital staff, as well as nominated representatives of key local stakeholder organisations.
