We are very excited to announce that Jan Ditheridge will join the Trust as our new Chief Executive in March 2020.
Jan joins the organisation having been the Chief Executive of Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust (Shropcom) since 2013. She has overseen a period of sustained improvement at Shropcom, culminating in the Trust being rated as Good by the CQC across all its services earlier this year.
She is an experienced strategic leader with a background encompassing a broad variety of clinical, operational and leadership roles across health, social care and the private sector. She also has a wealth of expertise in the areas of cultural change, transformation, delivery, clinical quality and effective performance management.
Jan grew up in Derbyshire, completing her mental health and general training there before taking advantage of the many learning opportunities the NHS and healthcare has to offer around the country and abroad. She currently lives in Worcestershire and is looking forward to relocating to Sheffield to take up this exciting role.
Until Jan joins the Trust, Clive Clarke will continue as Interim Chief Executive.
