Nuffield Health to merge wellbeing and hospital divisions under new CEO Steve Gray

Nuffield Health is to merge its wellbeing and hospital divisions both at board and operational level as part of the strategy set out by new CEO Steve Gray.

Gray, who took the reins from David Mobbs on 1 December, has also shuffled the charity’s executive board as he bids to strengthen the delivery of the organisation’s integrated healthcare strategy. He said the charity itself must be fully integrated if it is to deliver on its vision of offering more accessible, innovative ways for people to get and stay healthy.

“Creating one Nuffield Health sets us up for success, placing our members, patients and customers at the centre of all we do,” said Gray.

“The new executive board has a great combination of healthcare and business knowledge; it’s a mix of the existing executive board, internal promotions and new faces and I believe it has everything it needs to be an extremely high performing leadership team.”

Headed up by Gray, the new executive board has some key changes to roles and responsibilities. Dr Andrew Jones, previously Nuffield Health’s Wellbeing MD, becomes chief operating officer, responsible for the delivery of services and standards across the whole organisation.

Alan Payne joins the organisation from Bupa, where he was most recently group digital director and takes up the newly created position of Chief Digital & Information Officer. Payne will focus on bringing IT and digital together to enable a ‘step change’, drive development and increase the organisation’s digital health offering.

Greg Hyatt remains in his role as chief finance officer, while a chief commercial officer will be announced shortly.

Luke Talbot, general counsel and company secretary, continues in his role, while Caroline Smith – a former colleague of Gray’s at Lloyds Pharmacy – will join the organisation on 1 February as business development director.

There are also two internal promotions to the board. Former Wellbeing medical director Dr Davina Deniszczyc joins the board as medical director, while Debbie Mansfield serves as HR Director.

The new executive board, effective immediately, consists of:

Steve Gray, chief executive officer

Dr Andrew Jones, chief operating officerAlan Payne, chief digital & information officer

Greg Hyatt, chief finance officerChief commercial officer (tbc)

Caroline Smith, business development director, from 1 February 2016Luke Talbot, general counsel & company secretary
