Anthony Hassall, 40, currently Executive Director of Strategy and Organisational Development at Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, is likely to take up his post later this year.
Anthony – who has lived in Salford for a number of years – has lengthy experience in developing strong, successful, strategic partnerships with health and social care organisations.
Previous roles include a number of senior roles in hospitals, primary care, the Department of Health, Cheshire and Merseyside Strategic Health Authority and a secondment to a mental health organisation in Massachusetts, USA.
Speaking about his appointment, Mr Hassall said: “I am very excited about this new position and I look forward to working with local people, GPs and the CCG’s Governing Body and staff team to build on an already-strong position.
“These are exciting times for Salford CCG and the NHS. I am eager to play my part.”
Dr Hamish Stedman, Salford GP and Chair of Salford CCG, said: “I am delighted to welcome Anthony Hassall on behalf of the Governing Body and the CCG as a whole.
“Anthony has clear experience and a strong record in delivering public and private partnerships, and transformational change across many organisations. He has a passionate belief in the power of staff and patient engagement in delivering lasting and sustainable programmes of work.
“There was serious competition for this role but I am confident we have appointed the right person.”
Mr Hassall replaces the current Chief Accountable Officer, Alan Campbell, 59, who announced his retirement last month after 24 years’ NHS service.
