Nuffield Health welcomes two Non-Executive Directors to strengthen its board

Nuffield Health, the UK's largest healthcare charity, has announced the appointment of two experienced non-executive directors to its board. The appointments of Tracey Killen and Lee Rochford will further bolster the board’s range of experience and expertise.

Tracey Killen brings a wealth of experience to her new role with Nuffield Health, with a career that includes her current role as Non-Executive Director of Morgan Sindall Group, a renowned construction and regeneration business, as well as being a Trustee of the Dorset and Somerset air ambulance service. Prior to this, Tracey held the position of Executive Director of People for the John Lewis Partnership, where she played a pivotal role in shaping and delivering an outstanding employment proposition for 92,000 Partners.

Lee Rochford brings a distinguished background in financial services spanning over 30 years. He assumes the role of Chair of the Finance and Investment Committee at Nuffield Health, drawing from his recent experience as CEO of Arrow Global plc, an integrated asset manager that underwent a strategic and cultural transformation under his leadership. Lee's experience also includes a tenure as CFO of Virgin Money, where he played a critical role in taking the company public.

In welcoming the new additions, Dr Natalie-Jane Macdonald, Chair of Nuffield Health, commented:

"We are thrilled to welcome Tracey Killen and Lee Rochford to our board. They bring a wealth of experience from prominent consumer-facing organisations particularly in the people experience and financial management space and complement the existing board members skillset and experience.

In a time of unprecedented demand on the healthcare system, the Charity is committed to play its part to deliver the highest quality care and services to the diverse communities we serve across the UK. These additions will strengthen key areas of our board and help us on our journey as we strive to fulfil our purpose to build a healthier nation."
