WORKFORCE: Director of estates and facilities at University College London Hospitals Foundation Trust Trevor Payne is to take up the equivalent job at Barts Health Trust.

Mr Payne will start work at the £1bn-plus turnover trust in east London in November after six years with UCLH.

The post at Barts is arguably the biggest of its kind in the NHS, with the health service’s largest PFI scheme to manage at the Royal London site plus plans for remodelling the Whipps Cross and Newham hospital estates, and the absorption of NHS Tower Hamlets’ community services and associated estate.
