Mental health nurse becomes chief executive of Hertfordshire NHS trust

A mental health nurse has been picked to lead NHS mental health services in Hertfordshire.

Tom Cahill will replace Bill Macintyre who is retiring from the post as chief executive of Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust NHS Trust.

Mr Cahill, who lives in Stevenage, qualified as a mental health nurse in the late 1980s before moving into various service management positions. In February 2005 he moved to the Hertfordshire trust and became its deputy chief executive in 2007.

‘I am delighted to be appointed to the post of chief executive of the Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust,’ Mr Cahill said.

‘The trust already has a good reputation, which has been developed over many years under the leadership of Bill Macintyre and I look forward to continuing the journey towards achieving our vision of becoming the leading provider of mental health and specialist learning disability services in the country.’

  • I am very delighted by this appointment. I believe that the more trained nurses we have at the top of management structure, the better our healthcare delivery will be.
