She will join the National Intensive Support Team at NHS England & Improvement from the beginning of December. In a message to staff, she said: “It has been an honour to work so closely with you during the last four years. I am tremendously proud of everything we have achieved together, especially delivering the improvements highlighted by the recent Care Quality Commission report.”
Trust chairman, Melloney Poole, said: “Maggie has served Isle of Wight NHS Trust and Island residents with distinction since taking up the role of chief executive in 2017.
“Her secondment to the National Intensive Support Team at NHS England & Improvement will ensure that NHS staff and patients continue to benefit from her experience and expertise.
“Along with the wider leadership team, she has worked hard to bring about sustainable improvement in the services that Islanders rely on.”
