RD&E appoints new Chief Executive


The Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust has appointed Suzanne Tracey as its new Chief Executive. Ms Tracey, who has been the Trust’s Director of Finance and Business Development, Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer and more recently acting Chief Executive, will take up her post with immediate effect.

RD&E Chairman James Brent said: “Suzanne has been a key member of the Trust’s well regarded executive team for almost eight years and has made a significant contribution to the success of the RD&E during this time.

“She brings with her extensive NHS experience having worked at a senior level in a number of acute trusts and a commissioning organisation. She also has in-depth local knowledge of the Trust and the wider health economy and a compelling vision for how she would like the Trust to develop over time.

“Suzanne has done an outstanding job over the last few months as interim Chief Executive and I believe the Trust will continue to go from strength to strength under her leadership.”

Commenting on her appointment, Suzanne said: “I am honoured to be appointed to this role and it will be a privilege to serve our patients and staff. I know full well that the RD&E is a superb organisation that delivers the very best care to the people who need it, largely because we have incredibly committed and compassionate staff who do their utmost for the people in their care.

“This is a time of profound change in the NHS but I and my fellow Board members are fully committed to helping to steer the Trust through the challenges we face so that we continue to provide safe, high quality care delivered with courtesy and respect to the communities we serve.”
