David McVittie is leaving the Trust after eleven successful years in post, during which time the Trust has moved from financial deficit to a consistent record of balancing its books, and from an abysmal mortality rate to a position in the top quartile in the country, as well as becoming a national leader in a number of new clinical procedures. The Community Voice recorded its thanks to him for his work at Hillingdon Hospital in the message book that was presented to him as part of his farewell party on 29th February.

The good news is that David McVittie is not moving far. He is going to Northwick Park Hospital asTransition Director and Chief Executive Designate for the proposed merger of North West London Hospital NHS Trust with Ealing Hospital NHS Trust.  Many of our members are Northwick Park patients so it is reassuring that this hospital is to be led by a known and locally respected new leader. He has already said that he looks forward to visiting The Community Voice in his new role, when he has had time to assess his new responsibilities.

 Shane Degaris, Deputy Chief Executive, will act as Chief Executive of the Hillingdon Hospital Trust until that post is filled, which is expected to be in several months’ time.

Bravo David, the sentiment was there for all to see, even saw a tear or two. Good luck
