WORKFORCE:  Amanda Fadero, current chief executive of NHS Brighton and Hove, has been appointed as designate chief executive for the primary care trust “cluster” that will cover Sussex.

Four PCTs – East Sussex Downs and Weald; Hastings and Rother; West Sussex; and Brighton and Hove – will form the cluster from April.

Ms Fadero said: “I am delighted to have been asked to lead the NHS in Sussex through the next couple of years of change, as the NHS system moves from the current to new ways of working with GPs at the helm.”
