We are delighted to have appointed Dr Matthew Patrick as our interim chief executive.
Matthew, a psychiatrist moved to south east Cornwall with his wife, who has close family in Cornwall.
Since his relocation in 2019, he’s been helping the Trust on a voluntary basis, with its pandemic planning. Most recently he’s been helping the south east Cornwall primary care network to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine.
Matthew whose NHS career spans 36 years has 15 years of board level leadership which includes 12 years as a chief executive at Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and prior to his retirement, at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
Matthew will remain at the Trust for few months, while we recruit a substantive chief executive.
