Cedi Frederick has been appointed chair of North Middlesex University Hospital Trust

Cedi Frederick has taken up the post at North Middlesex University Hospital Trust, taking over from Peter Carter, who had been interim in the role since February 2019.

Mr Frederick has previously been a non-executive director at Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust, which was run by NMUH chief executive Maria Kane at the time.

Dr Carter replaced Dusty Amroliwala, who was appointed in February 2017 and was chair when the trust rejected full membership of the Royal Free London’s hospital group, citing fears of “cherry picking”, stability and the loss of clinical services.

Commenting on Mr Frederick’s appointment, London regional director Sir David Sloman said: “Peter brought a range of skills and experience from his work across mental health and nursing. His positive mark on the trust is evident and I wish him well for the future.

“Throughout his career, Cedi has committed to improving local health in his work across charities, business and the NHS. I am delighted that he will be taking up the position of chair. With Cedi bringing invaluable experience to the role, I believe that North Middlesex University Hospital will continue to deliver the best possible care for patients under his watch.”

NMUH chief executive Maria Kane said: “Cedi has a wealth of experience gained across several sectors, including neighbouring trusts, and I have had the pleasure of working with Cedi in the past and really look forward to working with him again. He has good knowledge of our local area and the population we serve.

“I would like to thank Dr Peter Carter for taking on the role of interim chair since February 2019 and for his wise counsel in leading the board during this period. He has done a tremendous job and we wish Peter all the best for the future.”
