The new Chief Executive of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust has vowed to embrace technological and scientific advances in her new role.
Amanda Pritchard, who has replaced Sir Ron Kerr, was officially approved by the board this week after working as Acting Chief Executive since October.
She said: “While Guy’s and St Thomas’ has a long and proud history, we must focus on the future. The challenges we face are significant, but so too are the opportunities, particularly if we embrace new technology and scientific advances.
“We need to deliver the best possible care to our patients right now, whilst also working hard to deliver the transformation needed to sustain our services and to take full advantage of the opportunities that are on the horizon if we grasp them.”
