Nuffield Health: Elizabeth Robb

Healthcare charity Nuffield Health has appointed Elizabeth Robb to its board of governors and she will also sit on Nuffield Health’s quality and safety committee.

Robb spent most of her clinical career as a nurse and midwife in the NHS. For more than 17 years she was director of nursing and deputy chief executive in two NHS trusts in Somerset and London, including a period as acting chief executive.

Subsequently she was chief executive of the Florence Nightingale Foundation for seven years, where she helped improve health, clinical outcomes and patient experience through building nursing and midwifery research and leadership capacity and capability.

Dr Natalie-Jane Macdonald, chair of Nuffield Health, said: “Nuffield Health employs more than 2,000 nursing staff, who are critical in the delivery of the charity’s ambitions and purpose. I am delighted to welcome Elizabeth to the board, whose extensive background in both nursing and clinical leadership positions will be invaluable to the charity, as we continue to maintain high-standards and drive improvement across our clinical services.”

“With people across the UK facing the cost-of-living crisis and widespread economic uncertainty, our purpose to build a healthier nation is as important as ever. Elizabeth’s experience and leadership on the board will help to deliver on our purpose.”
