UCLH appoints new non-executive directors 

17/12/2018 00:00 

UCLH is pleased to announce the appointment of three new non-executive directors – Dr Junaid Bajwa, Dr Jane Collins and Dr Clare Gerada.

Dr Junaid Bajwa was born at UCLH and is a practising GP with experience of serving a deprived London community. He has been interested in the use of technology and data to improve patient outcomes for many years, and has worked with NHS England on projects involving AI and data analytics.

In addition he also works for Merck Sharp and Dohme as the Global Executive Director for Partnerships and Strategic Alliances, within their Digital Accelerator.

Dr Jane Collins was a consultant paediatric neurologist and subsequently the Chief Executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital. For the past six years she has been the Chief Executive of Marie Curie and will therefore bring important third sector experience to the Board.

Dr Clare Gerada trained at UCLH. She is senior partner at the Hurley Group practice in Lambeth serving 100,000 patients. She has also trained in psychiatry and set up the NHS Practitioner Health Programme, an organisation which supports doctors with mental health issues. She has a national reputation and significant experience of integrated care. She is interested in how digital transformation can support clinicians. She was Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners.

Meanwhile, Lord David Prior has stepped down as UCLH Chairman to become the Chair of NHS England. Vice Chairman Harry Bush has taken on the role of interim Chair from 1 November until February 2019 while we recruit a permanent replacement. Dr Bush has been a member of our Board since 2012.
