A new Non-executive Director has joined the Board of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) for the first time since the Trust was awarded Foundation status in October 2015.

Paula Hay-Plumb, who has Board experience across the public and private sectors, joined the Trust in September 2017 after being appointed by the OUH Council of Governors.

She is currently a Non-executive Director of The Crown Estate, Hyde Housing Association and Aberforth Smaller Companies Trust plc and previous appointments include the National Audit Office, the Forensic Science Service and Skipton Building Society.

Her executive career included serving as Chief Executive of the national regeneration agency, English Partnerships, and Corporate Finance and Group Reporting Director at Marks and Spencer plc.

Paula said: "I am delighted to be joining the OUH Board and look forward with enthusiasm to working with colleagues throughout the Trust. There are many challenges ahead for OUH, and I am proud to play a part in addressing them."

Dame Fiona Caldicott, Chairman of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: "The wealth of experience and expertise that Paula brings to her role means that she is ideally placed to help to steer OUH as we continue to work as effectively as we can for our patients, with our staff."
