WORKFORCE: Jane Ramsey is to be the new chair of Cambridge University Hospitals Foundation Trust, succeeding Dr Mary Archer.

Her previous roles include chair of Lambeth PCT and senior legal positions across several London local authorities. She also chairs a local authority trading company providing services to people with learning disabilities and equipment to those with physical disabilities.

She will take over from Dr Archer, who is stepping down after 10 years, later this year.

Ms Ramsey said: ”This is a fantastic opportunity to continue to provide excellent healthcare for local people, work closely with a world-class university, and work with partners on developing the biomedical campus which will be a hub for the creation of new and life-changing drugs and treatments of the future.”
