West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust appoints new chief executive

Dr Ewen Cameron has recently started his new role as chief executive at the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (WSFT).

Ewen previously worked as the director of improvement and transformation at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH), a role he held since February 2018. He simultaneously worked as the interim chief operating officer for CUH in 2021/22.

At CUH, Ewen worked to develop a programme of continuous improvement within the organisation alongside productivity, digital and innovation.

I’m really looking forward to working alongside colleagues throughout the community and across both our hospitals to continue offering dedicated and high-quality care for patients.”

Ewen also worked as a consultant gastroenterologist in his previous role, a position he will continue to pursue alongside his new role at WSFT once a week.

Jude Chin, chair of West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Ewen brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge, making him the perfect choice to lead the Trust into the future. He is an outstanding leader, whose passion and commitment to the NHS will be a great asset to our organisation.”
