The chief executive of Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust will leave this year to lead a neighbouring mental health trust.
Ifti Majid will leave Derbyshire at the end of this year to become chief executive of the larger Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust, after its CEO John Brewin announced his retirement earlier this year.
Mr Majid – who was recently named a wildcard in HSJ’s Top 100 most influential people in health – has led Derbyshire Healthcare since 2017 and was previously deputy chief executive and chief operating officer. He has been at the trust for almost 10 years.
The trust is rated “good” overall by the Care Quality Commission, with some services rated “outstanding”.
Derbyshire Healthcare chair Selina Ullah said: “On behalf of the Derbyshire Healthcare board of directors, I would like to congratulate Ifti on his appointment.
“Whilst we will all be very sad for Ifti to leave the trust, I know this is a rare opportunity to lead a wide range of services, including many that Nottinghamshire Healthcare offer across a regional and national footprint.”
Derbyshire Healthcare will now begin the process for appointing a new chief executive.
