Health boss named as one of country’s top ten NHS Trust chief executives

SIR Andrew Cash, chief executive of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been named as one of the country’s top ten NHS Trust chief executives in 2017 by the Health Service Journal.

The annual list recognises NHS Trust chief executives who excel in leadership, improving care and driving efficiency, and was judged by some of the NHS’ leading figures, including CQC chief inspector of hospitals Sir Mike Richards, NHS England medical director Sir Bruce Keogh and NHS Improvement director of nursing Ruth May.

Judging was based on three main criteria: the Trust’s performance of their trust; their contribution to the wider health economy or the NHS; and the personal example set by the chief executive including leadership style, mentoring, and inclusive leadership.

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals cares for over two million patients each year in the local community and at its five adult hospitals:

• The Royal Hallamshire Hospital
• The Northern General Hospital
• Charles Clifford Dental Hospital
• Weston Park Cancer Hospital
• Jessop Wing Maternity Hospital

As one of the longest serving Chief Executives in the NHS, Sir Andrew has worked at local, regional and national level, including by invite at the Department of Health in Whitehall on a number of occasions. He is a visiting professor in leadership development at the Universities of York and Sheffield.
