Chief Executive Interview: Richard Beeken, Walsall Healthcare Trust
Richard Beeken became chief executive of Walsall Healthcare Trust on 1 March 2018, and has the task of taking organisation, which remains in quality special measures from “requires improvement” to “good”. He has also been given responsibility for networking acute services across Black Country and West Birmingham sustainability and transformation partnership. His first chief executive role was for Wye Valley Trust, which he led out of special measures, from 2014 to 2016.
He has also held senior roles at NHS Improvement and University Hospitals of North Midlands Trust. Despite having a career peppered with executive roles in troubled providers, Mr Beeken does not see himself as a turnaround director.
