Roisin Fallon-Williams, Chief Executive of Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust, announces departure plans

Roisin Fallon Williams

Roisin Fallon-Williams, Chief Executive of Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust (NCHC NHS Trust) will be leaving the Trust within the next few months.  Roisin has juggled working away from home with family commitments in Bedford since 2014 and is now looking to spend more time at home with her husband and family. 

Since joining NCHC, Roisin’s energy, enthusiasm and commitment have been evident in all she has undertaken and she leaves the Trust in a very strong position enabling NCHC to keep on improving the quality and safety of all their services.  Roisin has also played a key role in bringing the health and care system in Norfolk together to provide better services for the Norfolk community.  Her passion for staff engagement and putting patients’ at the heart of all we do has been her clear vision from the beginning and has spread throughout the organisation. 

NCHC NHS Trust Chair, Geraldine Broderick, said: “From a personal perspective, I will miss Roisin for her huge leadership contribution to our organisation and wider system, but above all I will miss Roisin for simply being her.  I’m sure you will all join me in wishing her well in the future and thanking her for her personal and professional commitment to the Trust.” 

Medical Director, Dr Venu Harilal said: “For me, Roisin’s impact on the Trust has represented a huge cultural change – her leadership style has transformed the culture to embrace non-hierarchical values, releasing staff to where they are needed, at the forefront of patient care.”     

Roisin says of her time at the Trust: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at NCHC, and the Trust will always hold a very special place in my heart. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for making me feel welcome from the start and for embracing the changes we have made together.

“I have loved being part of the NCHC team.  I have seen us all work hard to improve quality and we have increased our capability.  We have focused on innovating and changing how we provide care in order that there are really effective services into the future, despite the considerable and increasing pressures on our staff and resources.  I would very much like to remain part of the team, but being separated from my family in order to do so is something that I know I cannot do in the longer term.  I have therefore sadly made the decision to go now, to spend more time at home, take a break and to reflect on what to do next in my career.”
