Senior consultant appointed Clinical Chair at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Posted Wednesday, August 21, 2019 7:53 PM

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Tim Taylor as the new Clinical Chair for Medicine at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (SFHFT). 

Dr Taylor joins us in September on a secondment from Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) where he is currently a Consultant Neuroradiologist and Deputy Divisional Director for Cancer and Associated Specialities.

Dr Taylor will be one of five Clinical Chairs at SFHFT joining the existing chairs for Urgent and Emergency Care, Surgery, Women’s and Children’s and Diagnostics and Outpatients. He will be part of the Trust’s senior management team reporting into Dr Andy Haynes, Executive Medical Director and Simon Barton, Chief Operating Officer.

Dr Andy Haynes said:

“Having followed a comprehensive recruitment process, we are very much looking forward to welcoming Tim to TeamSFH in this important role which will further strengthen our medical division.  I’m particularly pleased as it now means we will again have a full complement of clinical chairs, divisional general managers and heads of nursing across our five divisions.  I am looking forward to witnessing the skills and values that he will bring to Sherwood Forest Hospitals.”

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Anne-Louise Schokker for leading the Medical division so effectively from 2017 and her role as Clinical Governance Lead after returning to the trust in 2016.
