Roisin Fallon-Williams has been confirmed as chief executive at Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust.
She joined the trust, which is Norfolk’s main provider of NHS community health services, as interim chief executive in October.
A registered nurse still, Ms Fallon-Williams began her career in the NHS in 1982 and has held board level positions in NHS trusts for over 12 years.
“I have been inspired by many of the staff I have met in recent months”
Prior to joining the Norfolk provider, she was director of strategy and business support at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust and before that a board director with Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
Confirming her permanent appointment as chief executive, trust chair Ken Applegate said: “Over the last few months Roisin has proved to be a real asset to us. Roisin will help us build upon our strong foundations and to continue to go from strength to strength with even better services.”
Ms Fallon-Williams said: “We have a fantastic workforce, all of whom deliver excellent services and are committed to taking care of people locally.
“I have been inspired by many of the staff I have met in recent months who every day ensure our local community receives the best possible care and have continued to go that extra mile at a time of increased pressure,” she said.
“We have a great deal to be proud of in our achievements and much to be positive about in our current situation,” she added.
The Care Quality Commission rated services provided by Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust as “good” in December, after a three-day inspection in September.
