New Appointments to the Board of Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust

John and Andrew

Local community-based NHS services provider, Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust (NCH&C), has appointed two new people to its Board. NCH&C is pleased to announce the appointment of two new Non Executive Directors (NED), John Kennedy, FCCA (pictured: right), and Andrew David Williams, BA (hons) MBA (pictured: left).

John Kennedy is a qualified accountant who is currently Chief Executive of Proxama plc, and has held various Director level posts previously with Aviva, the RAC, Towergate, and Validus. He brings to the role a rare combination of financial and commercial experience, delivering across heavily regulated and governed environments, and he will start in post as a NED on 1 October.

He said of his appointment, “I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to give back to the Norfolk community that I owe so much to; I grew up here, I worked here and I have built a career and a family here, and the NCH&C aims and values are a great fit with my own. My experience in the financial and commercial sector will help me to work with the Board on securing the future of NCH&C’s services and working towards continuous improvement of those services.”  

Andrew Williams has been a NHS PCT Chief Executive, Local Authority Director of Children's Services and Adult Social Services, Chief Executive of Vida Healthcare GP Partnership and a Deputy Chief Executive of a mental health NHS Trust. He is currently active as a volunteer in the charity sector with Headway, for people with brain injuries. Andrew brings a track record of delivering outstanding results in difficult public sector financial and political conditions, and he will start in post as an Associate NED on 1 September.

He said, “I hope to combine my experiences as a senior leader working in diverse care organisations and partnerships in Norfolk and around the country with my own personal experiences of the Trust and its services as a person living with a brain injury. This unique perspective will help me tackle the evolving collaborative and competitive commercial challenges and opportunities that community health services face today but it will also help me to keep an insight into the patient journey and the valuable work of the Trust.”

NCH&C delivers a range of NHS services, such as community nursing, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, palliative care, and children’s health services to people in and around Norfolk and Suffolk. The Trust’s expert staff deliver these, and many other services, to patients within community clinics, hospitals, and even their own homes.

NCH&C Chair, Geraldine Broderick, said: “I’m extremely pleased that we have another very strong set of talents joining our Board and we look forward to working with John and Andrew and their wealth of experience in taking the Trust forward in providing the high standards of care, treatment and recovery services that the public expects.”
