WORKFORCE: A new chair is taking over at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust.

David Edwards will replace Anne Campbell when she steps down at the end of August. Mr Edwards has chaired NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney and previously had extensive experience as chief executive of several teaching hospitals, as well as having been a non-executive director at the James Paget University Hospital Foundation Trust.

Ms Campbell, a former MP, has chaired the trust for sis and a half years during which it became a foundation trust and was a founding partner of Cambridge University Health Partners. Earlier this year Monitor found the trust was in significant breach of its terms of authorisation due to its failure to provide effective leadership and governance.
