Judges awarded last night our Chief Executive Lesley Watts the prestigious CEO of the year award at the HSJ Awards 2018 ceremony in Mayfair.

Judges commented: “Lesley showed truly outstanding, engaging and sensitive leadership of the Trust and her work with partner organisations to deliver improved performance and patient outcomes.

“She is direct, honest and empathetic, providing an inspiring way forward in challenging circumstances by listening to staff, patients and partner organisations to build a shared view of the future.

“Her personal example shows not just her skill in leading a large and complex trust in a dynamic and challenging environment but her day-to-day work ‘at the coal face’ shows to everyone the strength and depth of her commitment to patients and colleagues.”
