Top spot for Marianne Griffiths in NHS leadership ranking
Our chief executive Dame Marianne Griffiths has been named by the Health Service Journal (HSJ) as the top chief executive in the NHS for the second year running.
Last year, Marianne became the first woman to head the HSJ rankings. And she retained the No.1 spot when the top 50 for 2019 was announced by the magazine today.
The judging panel included Care Quality Commission (CQC) chief inspector of hospitals Ted Baker, NHS England/Improvement director of emergency and elective care Pauline Philip, Unison head of health Sara Gorton, NHS Providers chief executive Chris Hopson, NHS Employers chief executive Danny Mortimer and NHS Confederation chief executive Niall Dickson.
The judges were impressed by both the high standards Western Sussex has continued to set over the past 12 months and the improvements made by Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals under the leadership of Marianne and the WSHFT executive team.
