Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) ICB has announced that Caroline Trevithick has been appointed as interim chief executive officer, moving into the post from her current role as the ICB’s chief nursing officer and deputy chief executive.

Caroline is described by the ICB as having held a number of senior leadership positions in healthcare settings for more than 20 years, across local, regional and national levels. She has also been celebrated for her leadership skills; 2021 saw Caroline awarded an Honorary Doctorate by Loughborough University “for her leadership of the LLR COVID Vaccination Programme”.

David Sissling, ICB chair, shares his confidence that Caroline will “provide effective executive leadership for the ICB over an extended period. Caroline has vast experience of the local area and of working with our partners. She demonstrated during the interview her dedication and passion for working with staff, patients and the public to shape great healthcare for all. 

Caroline comments: “I am delighted to be taking up this role and look forward to working with colleagues and system partners to continue to build on the great work already taking place for the benefit of the people who live and work across our diverse communities.”

In August, we took a look at delivery actions from LLR ICB’s joint forward plan; we also we explored their sustainability commitments through the ICB’s green plan.

On another strategic note, in February we reported how LLR refreshed their carers’ strategy, which sees the ICB working alongside Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and Rutland County Council.to ensuring that carers are recognised, valued and supported.
