Andrew speaking web

This week we welcome Andrew Pike as managing director at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals.

Andrew has spent 34 years of his career in the NHS in Essex, with a wealth of experience in hospitals, primary care and commissioning. 

He greeted staff at the Monday morning Stepping up meeting and for the rest of the week has been doing the rounds meeting many more. On Wednesday he joined Clare Panniker, chief executive, at briefings at Orsett and Basildon hospitals, updating staff on the latest developments on proposed service changes for our three trusts.

Andrew said: “It’s been an exciting and eventful first week; I am greatly enjoying being back in the fast-paced environment of an acute hospital. I’m glad to have met so many individuals and teams already, and look forward to meeting more in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please do say hello and introduce yourself when you see me.”
