Dame Julie Moore – voice of common sense will be missed
20 April 2018
Dame Julie Moore, the chief executive of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust has announced her retirement.
The HSJ writes that since joining the NHS as a graduate nurse, "Dame Julie has become one of the most renowned chief executives in the health service."
She was made a dame in 2012 and she has frequently been named in HSJ’s top chief executives list.
The chair of NHS Providers, Dame Gill Morgan, said:
“Dame Julie Moore has been a great leader - one of the stars of her generation. She has been an influential voice for common sense and for the NHS, never afraid to speak out when things were wrong. She took her clinical learning and experiences as a former nurse to focus on what matters to patients.
She has been an influential voice for common sense and for the NHS, never afraid to speak out when things were wrong.
“During her twelve years in charge at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust she oversaw many changes, including one of the largest NHS mergers between her own trust and Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust. This will benefit patients and strengthen the local health economy.
“She will be missed locally and nationally and we wish her well in her future endeavours."
