Sir Robert Naylor to step down as chief executive 

28/09/2015 00:00 

UCLH chairman Richard Murley announced earlier this month that Sir Robert Naylor will be stepping down from his role as UCLH chief executive on 31 March 2016 to develop new career opportunities.

Sir Robert was appointed chief executive at UCLH in November 2000 and this year will complete 15 years in the role. Previously he was chief executive at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust in Birmingham for a similar period from 1985. He joined the NHS in 1972 as a graduate trainee.

He has led or been involved in numerous national and regional initiatives over four decades and received a Knighthood in the Queen's New Year Honours in December 2008 in recognition of his services to the NHS.

Sir Robert has decided to step down at this time to develop other opportunities and commercial interests. It also gives time for the chairman to identify a successor and support the transition of a new chief executive before the end of his tenure.

UCLH has now started the search for a successor, which has been advertised, with interviews scheduled for late November.
