Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust has appointed nurse Tracy Bullock as its new chief executive.
A former nurse with a keen focus on the delivery of high quality patient care, Mrs Bullock will attempt to provide excellent patient care, sustained performance and build a secure financial future for secondary care services across Cheshire.
Mrs Bullock has held both clinical and managerial leadership roles in the NHS, including working as director of nursing and deputy chief executive at the trust.
Tracy said she was delighted with her appointment and is looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.
She said: “I am thrilled to have been appointed. The NHS is going through a period of significant change as it adapts to increased public expectations in a new era of financial constraint.
“In such times, mid Cheshire patients deserve hospital services that strive to be the best, and my role as chief executive will be to deliver precisely that.”
The chairman of the trust, John Moran, added: “I am delighted to announce Tracy’s appointment as chief executive. Tracy cares passionately about patient care and possesses a range of skills and experience which will be a huge asset to our trust.”
