Our Chief Executive’s Blog

Gavin Boyle Gavin Boyle is Chief Executive of University Hospitals Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust

“Working in the NHS is a huge privilege; there are few walks of life where it is possible to make such a positive impact on people’s lives. It’s an institution I love and which I think distinguishes us as a nation and as a civilised society. I also believe that we have a responsibility to safeguard it for future generations.

My priorities are delivering the best possible patient care, enabling our people to play their part, working in partnership and being sustainable in improving the care for our community.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading my regular blog and finding out more about the work of the Trust.

'Winter still has a few surprises for us'

This week, we held some of our Time4Tea events across our hospitals. If you haven’t heard of these, they are really informal sessions for staff to come along and chat to the Executive team about anything that’s on their mind. We also put on some breakfast sandwiches and hot drinks as a bit of a ‘thank you’. There is one final Time4Tea this month on Tuesday next week, from 9.30am-11am, in the Staff restaurant at Queen's Hospital Burton, for anyone who wants to come and talk to the Exec team.
