chiefs have announced that Mark Devlin will take over as chief
executive of Medway NHS Foundation Trust.
Mr Devlin has worked in the NHS for the past
20 years and is the chief executive of Dartford and
Gravesham NHS Trust.
Vernon Hull, chairman of Medway NHS Foundation
Trust, which runs Medway Maritime Hospital, said: "We had a
very strong field of candidates for the post of chief executive and
I am very pleased to announce Mark's appointment and extend to him
a warm welcome.
"Mark has a great deal of experience in the
NHS in a wide variety of roles; he led one of the major teaching
hospital divisions at the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust. He was
also the deputy chief executive at North West London Hospitals
prior to his appointment at Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust.
"I'd also like to say thank you to Peter
Coles, our interim chief executive, who has been with us since the
beginning of November and who has ensured that this period of
transition has run as smoothly as possible."
Mr Coles will remain in the interim post until
Mr Devlin takes over in 2010.
Mr Devlin replaces Andrew Horne who left the
trust in October after seven years in charge.
