Dr Andy Heeps has been confirmed as the new chief operating officer at North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust, and will take up the role in early December 2018.
Dr Heeps joins North Mid from Barking Havering and Redbridge Hospitals NHS Trust in east London, where is currently divisional director for specialist medicine. He is a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, and also a fellow of The Health Foundation’s ‘GenerationQ’ quality improvement programme.
Chief Executive of North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust Maria Kane said:
“I’m delighted we’ve been able to appoint someone of Andy’s calibre to this key role at North Mid, and confident that he will continue to build on the improvements which we’ve worked hard to deliver so far.
“We’re particularly grateful that he is able to join us so quickly, as we continue to prepare for what is likely to be a demanding winter period, and pleased that he will be joining an already strong team which is absolutely committed to delivering outstanding care for our local communities.”
