Jackie named in HSJ top 50 Chief Execs 2016

Dr Jackie Bene, who took over as Chief Executive of the Trust in 2013, has been named in the Health Service Journal’s top 50 Chief Executives 2016.

Judges said she is  seen as a supportive leader who communicates well with staff. The trust has largely turned round following financial difficulties – not by imposing central control but by devolving money and responsibility to divisions – but has had a lot less publicity about this than some other organisations. Dr Bene still does a session a week as a consultant.
