Jackie Daniel becomes a dame for services to healthcare.

Angela Pedder

Former trust chief and STP lead Angela Pedder received a damehood

Dame Jackie became chief executive of the trust in 2012, and in 2015 led it out of special measures. The trust was rated good in February 2017 as it continued to recover from a high profile maternity care scandal.

She tweeted on 30 December: “Thank you so much for all the wonderful messages I have received this morning. I’m feeling very humbled and overwhelmed.”

Also becoming a dame is Angela Pedder. She stepped down as chief executive of Royal Devon and Exeter FT after 19 years in 2017, and was also the lead for the Wider Devon Sustainability and Transformation Partnership and the Northern, Eastern, and Western Devon success regime.

Outgoing Royal College of Surgeons president Clare Marx also received a damehood.

CBEs were awarded to NHS England chief financial officer Paul Baumann, former NHS England London director Anne Rainsberry, Care Quality Commission chief inspector for adult social care Andrea Sutcliffe, and Professor Tim Briggs, who leads the Getting It Right First Time programme.

Jackie Bene, chief executive of Bolton FT, was named as an OBE, as was former national patient safety director Mike Durkin.
