Community Trust executive appointed national chairman role

David Law, Chief Executive, Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust

David Law, Chief Executive of Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust, is the new chairman for the NHS Providers Community Services Group for the next two years. His position will involve hosting meetings three times a year with other chairman and chief executives of community NHS providers across the country.

The meetings are an opportunity to engage in round-table discussions, share in good practice, hear from decision makers and note policy updates among other items.

David said: “Community services are the key to helping maintain the health and wellbeing of the populations in which they serve. I am delighted to be representing this network as chairman and I look forward to meeting and sharing practices with other community services across the country.” 

During his time, David will work closely with NHS Providers – an organisation that supports the delivery of high quality, patient-focused care by enabling Trusts to learn from each other, acting as their public voice and helping shape the system in which they operate. David will work with colleagues at NHS Providers to shape the network and the role it plays in supporting community services.

Marta Piotrowicz, Networks Manager for NHS Providers, said: “We very much look forward to working with David to help support community services in their development. Our network provides a unique opportunity for leaders of community services to come together, learn from each other and develop solutions to the shared challenges they face. We would also like to express our gratitude to other candidates nominated for the position.”
