Chris Mellor acting Chair of Monitor – the Independent Regulator of NHS Foundation Trusts – has today announced that Dr David Bennett has been appointed as the interim Chief Executive of Monitor.
Chris Mellor said “I am very pleased that David Bennett has agreed to become Monitor’s interim Chief Executive. David has extensive knowledge of the policy and strategic context of the health sector as well as practical knowledge of the FT sector.
He continued “David’s wide ranging experience means that he is well placed to provide Monitor with day-to-day leadership at this time of considerable change.”
David Bennett commented “As the NHS faces up to a highly challenging financial climate it is my priority to encourage Foundation Trusts to make use of their unique freedoms to develop and deliver high quality care for their local communities. At the same time it is ever more important that public and patients have the knowledge that Monitor is providing effective oversight of the performance of the autonomous foundation trust sector. This is a hugely exciting time for Monitor and I am delighted that I will be able to play my part in developing this first class organisation’s strategy and direction.”
David’s appointment will continue until a permanent Chief Executive is in post following the appointment by the Secretary of State of a non-executive Chairman.
