The Trust has welcomed its new Chief Executive Officer, Sam Higginson, today (22 January).
Sam brings extensive experience to the role, having worked in and around the NHS for the last 20 years across strategy, finance and operational roles.
Shan Morgan, Chair of the Royal Devon, said: “After announcing his appointment in November 2023, I’m really pleased to welcome Sam formally to the Trust today.
“He brings considerable expertise and a strong understanding of the issues facing the NHS. He has been keen to get started and we are hugely looking forward to working with him.”
In the coming weeks, Sam will work through a detailed induction programme and looks forward to meeting teams and learning more about the organisation.
Shan added: “I would like to say a particularly warm thank you to Paul Roberts for the strength and stability he has brought to the Trust in his role as interim CEO.
“In a short space of time, Paul has had a significant positive impact and we are all grateful for his role in supporting the transition to new leadership.”
