Havering’s NHS hospital trust has announced the appointment of a former BT board member as its new chairman.

Joe Fielder has taken on the role of Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Trust (BHRUT) chairman – he performs the same role at the borough’s mental healthcare provider, the North East London Foundation Trust (Nelft).

Mr Fielder. who will begin his two-year term on November 1, said: “I am proud and privileged to be joining BHRUT.

“I can’t wait to get started working with the terrific staff here to build on their tireless efforts and work towards delivering even better outcomes for patients.

“What’s particularly exciting is the opportunity presented by chairing two fantastic, but separate and distinct, organisations; to have a unique and broad perspective across the length and breadth of local NHS services, which can help create improved collaborations for the best outcomes.

“I am passionate about holistic care. For me, that means looking at patients as whole individuals, caring for the whole of their needs, for the whole of their lives.”

BHRUT Chief Executive, Matthew Hopkins, said he was “delighted” to welcome Mr Fielder’s wealth of local knowledge to the trust.

He added: ““Joe is joining us at an exciting time, as we continue to make strong progress, leaving special measures earlier this year, and more recently returning to successfully hitting national targets in referral to treatment times, and in cancer performance.

“He is a fantastic person to continue leading our Board on the next stage of our improvement journey.”

Nelft Chief Executive, John Brouder also welcomed the appointment.

He said: “I would like to congratulate Joe and welcome his appointment as chair of BHRUT.

“This is a positive step to increase the collaboration and partnership working between our respective Trusts and this will benefit our patients and local community.”
