UHDB to welcome new Chief Digital Information Officer

William Monaghan will become UHDB's Chief Digital Information Officer

University Hospitals of Derby and Burton has appointed its first Chief Digital Information Officer, which will support the further integration of the Trust’s clinical digital systems.

William Monaghan will join us from NHS England, where he currently works as Transition Director and Director of Operations in NHS Transformation. William brings a wealth of experience to the UHDB Board with more than 14 years of NHS experience across NHS England, NHSX and acute Trusts.

Stephen Posey, incoming Chief Executive, said: “William’s expertise has seen him set and agree the strategy for the largest digital transformation programme in the world, alongside leading a portfolio of programmes that cover the full range of transformation activity, which will support the work we will be doing over the coming years. I have no doubt that William’s digital expertise will be a valuable addition to our leadership team and help support our digital transformation journey, with new technologies to better support colleagues and deliver exceptional care for patients.”

Dr Kathy McLean OBE, Chair, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to recruit another highly skilled Executive to the Trust to build on the expertise we have here at UHDB. The new leadership team under Stephen Posey, continues to progress and I’m sure that this will improve the care we are able to provide to our patients and communities and the support we can give to our hard-working staff.”

William Monaghan said: “It’s a privilege to be joining University Hospitals of Derby and Burton as Chief Digital Information Officer and a board member. I am excited to help deliver the digital strategy and lead the use of new digital technologies and approaches to better support colleagues to deliver exceptional care for patients.”
