• Andy Haynes will be seconded to the ICS three days a week 
  • Will continue as medical director and deputy chief executive at Sherwood Forest

The deputy chief executive of Sherwood Forest Hospitals Foundation Trust has been appointed as medical director of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System.

Andy Haynes has been medical director at SFH since 2014 and deputy chief executive since 2017.

He previously worked at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust where he was a senior consultant haematologist for 20 years, including lead clinician for cancer services.

Dr Haynes will be seconded to the ICS three days a week but will continue to be the permanent medical director and deputy chief executive at SFH.

Wendy Saviour, director of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS, said: “Dr Haynes has a vast amount of clinical knowledge and expertise and will be a huge asset to the system board.”

Dr Haynes said: “I am looking forward to taking up this new role, and continuing to work with the dedicated and talented staff across the system as we strive to provide the best care for our citizens and patients in Nottinghamshire.”

Richard Mitchell, chief executive at SFH, said: “Dr Haynes is well known and respected across the region and the wider NHS.”

Late last year, HSJ reported that Nottingham City Council had suspended its involvement in the ICS over concerns about the project’s transparency.
