Richard is interim chairman for trust
KCHFT’s Vice Chair Richard Field has temporarily stepped into the shoes of Chair David Griffiths after he retired in May.
Richard has been a non-executive director at KCHFT for seven years, so enables continuity during this period of change as we carry on with the strong progress made during David’s tenure as chair.
The trust is hoping to appoint a permanent replacement for David late in the summer, with a start date to be arranged following that.
Richard said: ‘Having worked closely with David as his vice chair, I am pleased to undertake this role until his successor can be appointed.
“I will continue to help the trust build on the strong platform that has been created, putting patients and staff at the heart of what we do.’’
