WORKFORCE: Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals Foundation Trust has appointed Dr David Fluck as substantive medical director.

The foundation trust made the appointment in December, according to latest board papers from January.

Trust chief executive Andrew Liles said: “David, who has been undertaking the role in an interim capacity since last February, had tough competition from outside the trust but was the unanimous choice of the interviewing panel.

“I am confident he will continue to be an inspirational and valued member of our executive team and board,” he said.
