WORKFORCE: Former BT director Ian Morfett is to become chairman of East and North Hertfordshire Trust in April.

He has been a non-executive director of the trust since 2005.

The trust’s outgoing chairman, Richard Beazley, said: “With decisions now taken and being implemented around the future configuration of Hertfordshire’s health service and the trust just about to enter the final phase of its application to become an NHS foundation trust, Ian’s appointment provides the trust with valuable continuity at a very important point in its future development.”
