A Hatfield man has been appointed as a non-executive director for the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust.
Former British Airways chief financial officer Nick Swift has joined the trust’s board and will start the four-year role from November 20, 2017, earning £6,157 annually.
The trust’s chair Ellen Schroder said: “Nick joins us at a very interesting point in the trust’s development, as it consolidates the changes made to inpatient and emergency services at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, as well as responding to the significant clinical, operational and financial challenges facing the NHS currently.
“These are programmes to which I am sure Nick will make a very important contribution.”
Mr Swift said: “Like many people in the UK, I have huge admiration and respect for the NHS. I am really looking forward to learning more and, over time, contributing to the success of the trust.”
The trust includes Welwyn Garden City’s New QEII and Lister Hospital in Stevenage.
