An NHS director has left the region’s mental health trust to become interim chief executive at Norfolk’s community health organisation.

Josie Spencer was on a six-month secondment as deputy chief executive and chief operating officer at Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT) but will now join Norfolk Community Health and Care (NCHC).

Ms Spencer, a registered nurse, has more than 35 years of experience in the health service and 14 years of experience as a director or acting chief executive.

She said: “I’m very excited to be joining NCHC and continuing the direction of travel and also helping to bring the health and care system in Norfolk together to provide better services for all our population.

“I share the trust’s passion for putting patients at the heart of services and engaging all of our staff. I am really looking forward to visiting staff across the trust to experience the invaluable work that they do.”
