NHS Property Services (NHSPS), which owns and runs about 10 per cent of the NHS estate, has appointed four new non-executive directors to the board.
Nick Moberly and Adrian Belton join from previous roles in the executive teams at NHS trusts. Mark Lomas will become a non-executive director of People, Culture and Diversity & Inclusion (D&I), and Caroline Wehrle will take on the role of non-executive director of audit and governance.
Jane Hamilton, NHSPS chair, said: “As the NHS transforms to meet the needs of patients post-pandemic, we also need to continue to play our part in helping our colleagues ensure the NHS is fit for purpose, now and in the future; I have no doubt that our new non-executive directors will help us to achieve this. Building a strong culture of diversity and inclusion is also incredibly important to us at NHSPS, and we are proud to be broadening our leadership and experience across this area within the organisation.”
Moberly and Belton both have extensive experience of working within the NHS – Moberly joined the NHS in 2003 and was CEO of the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust for nine years, and Belton chaired Stockport NHS Foundation, where he helped to drive its transformation and oversaw its organisational turnaround.
Lomas and Wehrle also bring a wealth of experience to their roles. In 2019, Lomas won Head of Diversity of the Year at the Inclusive Companies Excellence Awards and was named in the People Magazine Top 20 D&I Powerlist in 2020. Wehrle was formerly Diageo’s global head of risk and compliance.
Across NHSPS’s wider board, Jane Kennedy’s three-year term of service ended in July, and David Godden has extended his term on the board for 18 months.
