New boss for North Cumbria's hospitals

Carole Heatly, currently Chief Exec at Kingston hospital trust in South London, has been appointed to succeed Marie Burnham as CEO of the North Cumbria Acute Hospitals Trust with effect from October.

As Mike Little has taken over from Eric Urquhart as Chairman of the Acute Trust, which runs both the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehavem and the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle, and Marie Burnham had reshuffled the executive directors before announcing her departure, this represents a complete changeover from the trust's previous top management.

Ms Heatly has worked in the NHS for 25 years, starting as a general nurse in Edinburgh.

I wish Carole Heatly all the best with the challenges she will face in this exceptionally important appointment.
