UCLH is pleased to announce that Baroness Julia Neuberger DBE will become the Chair on 25 February 2019.

Julia has made a very distinguished contribution to healthcare policy and management and is a local resident.

Julia said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining UCLH as the new Chair. I chaired the old Community NHS trust in the 1990s and loved it, and I grew up locally and live nearby. UCLH is a group of world class hospitals, doing world class research, and we can be proud of all its achievements, but it also has a local heart, and plays an important role in the area - it is a great honour to become part of all it does.”

Diarmid Ogilvy, Stakeholder Governor and Chair of the Appointment Panel, said: “On behalf of the Panel and Governors, I am delighted Julia has agreed to be the next Chair of UCLH. Julia’s professional experience, personal warmth, intellect and passion for improving health and social care are exceptional. Her appointment will serve our patients, staff, volunteers, academic partners and the local and wider health communities well in the future.”

Dr Harry Bush, Interim Chair, said: “We have been very fortunate to attract someone of Julia’s calibre to be Chair of UCLH.

"UCLH faces a challenging time as it implements an electronic health record system and faces budgetary constraints and rising demand for its services. Julia is well equipped to guide UCLH as it grapples with these challenges and with the opportunities that will arise from integration of local services and our commitment to creating a more research oriented hospital.”
