We are delighted to hear that Neil Macdonald is the new chief executive of Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.
Neil became interim chief executive at the Trust in March 2018. Since then, he has improved staff morale and delivered more care closer to people’s homes. He also maintained the Trust’s position of being one of the best in care for strokes, research and spinal injuries. Neil has also worked with partners to make sure health and social care services are working together across the county.
Commenting on his appointment, Neil said:
I have loved the last 10 months. I am proud of what we have achieved so far, and I am humbled by the dedication of our staff and volunteers. Without their professionalism and commitment, we couldn’t deliver the great standards of care for our patients that we aspire to.
The NHS is unique, and I understand how much our services mean to our communities. These are my local services too, where my family and friends are treated, and I have a strong ambition and aspiration to make us the safest healthcare system in the country.
We cannot achieve this in isolation and I look forward to working with our partners, our communities, our patients and our staff in making this vision a reality.
